YUSA CUBAN JAZZ QUINTET

Thu June 2 @ 8:00 pm

Regarded as the Ambassador of 21st Century Cuban Music, guitarist, bassist, vocalist, lyricist, composer and tres player, Yusa is one of the leading voices of Cuban music today. Her compositions have earned the acclaim of both her contemporaries on the island and international admirers. Born in Havana, music and the ocean have been central to her artistic production as a singer-songwriter. 

Yusa blazed trails in her early years as a member of the all-women quintet Quasi Jazz, cementing her voice in the jazz fusion world, but she is perhaps most known as the original musical director of the popular Cuban band Interactivo. 

She signed to Tumi Music in 2002 and since released a handful of albums to critical acclaim, including multiple CubaDisco Awards and BBC Radio World Music Awards. In 2008, she founded her own label, YUSA Music, on which she released her 5th album in 2012. She will be releasing her 6th album in 2022.
Yusa brings her vibrant blend of trova, son, pop, jazz, Cuban and Brasilian rhythms to the stage and leaves the audience always wanting more. She draws the listener in with her uncommon and very personal style, integrating Cuban styles with music from around the globe, avoiding clichés and achieving the ever elusive “fusion.” 
Tonight, she presents her Yusa Cuban Jazz Quintet, featuring
Yusa – guitar, bass, tres, piano, vocals 
Fernando Lima – drums 
Darianna Videaux – bass 
Vic Jcome – piano 
Chris Butcher – trombone
