Following her critically acclaimed Cubafonia album, Afro-Cuban singer and renowned jazz toast, Daymé Arocena, plays the Highline Ballroom, Saturday (June 17). And we’re giving away tickets to some of our luckiest readers.
Of what to expect from a live performance, the New York Times said this about Arocena’s NYC debut in 2016: “Her voice opened up to approach the earthy, full-throated cries of Afro-Cuban ritual chants. But the music surrounding her was far from traditional. It was jazz from a piano-bass-drums trio, with the harmonic and rhythmic complexities of hard-bop and the melodic grace of Brazilian pop. Ms. Arocena unites cosmopolitan musicianship with deep roots.”
