Sonocardiogram (Brownswood Recordings)

Dayméarocena Sonocardiogram 3000RGB

The new young voice of Cuba, Daymé Arocena was fronting big bands at 14 before Gilles Peterson signed her to his Brownswood Recordings imprint. Her fourth album for the label is her best yet. Strongly rooted in the religious practices of Santería, she fuses Cuban roots with jazz, soul, funk and electronica, all sung in a classically trained voice of rare depth and beauty. A Top of the World in #153.
