In conjunction with our latest special exhibition Drapetomanía: Grupo Antillano and the Art of Afro-Cuba, the African American Museum in Philadelphia partners with AfroTaino Productions to present an electrifying evening of music featuring Afro-Cuban jazz vocalist, Daymé Arocena.
With a deep vocal repertoire that includes scatting, Yoruban chants, gutteral whispers and her signature deep laugh, Daymé Arocena has been hailed as one of the most exciting artists in Afro-Cuban music today. Her debut project was named by NPR as one of the 50 best albums of the year, and continues to redefine the perception and understanding of Cuban music globally.
Guaranteed to be a can't-miss, unforgettable experience, Daymé Arocena performs for Philadelphia audiences at The African American Museum in Philadelphia as part of her US debut tour on Thursday, March 24. Be sure to grab your seats today!
“The biggest myth of the decades old Cuba/U.S. standoff is that it produced cultural isolation. One listen to Dayme Arocena’s voice and there is no doubt she heard as much Aretha as she heard Celia.” – NPR
