Jane Bunnett and Maqueque (CAN/CU)
Introducing the world to some of Cuba’s most promising female musicians, the group blends scintillating Afro-Cuban rhythms, folkloric influences, exhilarating jazz and soulful vocals into an utterly intoxicating blend.
Jane’s extensive work in Cuba has seen her perform with the great Hilario Duran, and her band Spirits Of Havana provided important performance opportunities to young talents like Dafnis Prieto, Yosvany Terry and David Virelles. In this latest outfit, Jane says the all-female line-up provides the band with an invigorating and unique energy that is both dynamic and driving.
