Jane Bunnett has introduced a lot of Great Cuban musicians to North American audiences over the past couple of decades, including Dafnis Prieto, Yosvanny Terry, Pedrito Martínez, and David Virelles. Now she has assembled an exciting new sextet featuring the finest young women musicians in Cuba. Maqueque consists of Jane + virtuoso drummer Yissy García, dynamic percussionist Dayme, Yusa on tres guitar and fretless bass, pianist Danae, and Magdelys on batás and congas. All are great vocalists as well as instrumentalists, and all are in their early 20′s except Yusa who’s a little older. Their blend of hardcore Cuban music with folkloric rhythms and Jazz has a broad appeal and their inaugural CD will be out in May 2014. Be one of the first presenters of this unique and crowd-pleasing band!
