Creole Choir of Cuba
Wednesday, February 27 at 7pm, Tickets: FREE
The Creole Choir of Cuba are Rogelio Torriente, Fidel Miranda, Teresita Miranda, Marcelo Luis, Dalio Vital, Emilia Diaz Chavez, Yordanka Fajardo, Irian Montejo, Marina Fernandes, Yara Diaz.
Be prepared to hear something completely different and ‘new’ from Cuba. In glorious songs like Edem Chanté (Listen To Us!), The Creole Choir celebrate the history of their Haitian descendents enslaved to the Caribbean from West Africa. The Creole Choir’s ten remarkable singers come from Camagüey, Cuba’s third city, down towards the eastern end of the island.
They grew up and studied music in this old colonial town, designated a UNESCO World heritage Site in 2008 for its colonial architecture. They have nurtured music passed down in their families since the early 19th century, gradually adding modern Haitian sounds following their own first visit to a Haitian festival in 1996.
Celebratory, with brisk Haitian rhythms and endlessly inventive vocal combinations.” – The New York Times (New York City USA)

“…I know people are coming to see us play the hits, and we’ll do ‘em all. We’ll throw in a couple of new songs and a few really deep tracks that we haven’t
done in 40 years, too.”
