Dayme Arocena in Concert

Dayme Arocena in Concert Award-winning Afro-Cuban jazz singer Daymé Arocena has been described as Cuba’s “finest young female singer” (The Guardian). Frequently compared to prominent figures such as Celia Cruz, Aretha Franklin, La Lupe, and Ella Fitzgerald, Arocena draws inspiration from the intertwining musical legacies of her native Cuba. Her output incorporates her Havana heritage, strong faith in Santeria, and early musical experiences that only escalated after François Renié, Director of Havana Cultura initiative, was struck by seeing one of her performances. A Juno Award and international acclaim soon followed — now, catch the singer live on stage right in North Adams.
