Taste The World Tent
Moreton Bay Stage
Singer, composer, arranger and bandleader, Daymé Arocena was recently dubbed by The Guardian as ‘Cuba’s finest vocalist’. The young Afro-Cuban artist, mentored by Gilles Petersen and winner of the prestigious Juno Award in 2015, has a rich understanding of her heritage but is also constantly finding new musical inspiration and connection through her love of soul and jazz.
The workshop is about Cuban rhythms, roots and dancing. The audience will become a big choir - up on their feet to dance and to sing three simple, traditional Cuban songs, in Spanish and Yoruba language. This workshop is going to be the perfect way to make you feel ready for a trip to Cuba in the future, where dancing and singing is an integral part of the culture and everyday life. Everyone is welcome to come and move their body in this workshop, because this is the best way to feel CUBA!
