Ships In 7-9 Business Days
The new album from Daymé Arocena is a vivid return toher Havana roots. Backed once again by a killer band offellow Cuban musicians, the visionary singer, composerand songwriter has stripped everything back to the core.Holding sessions in a simple, repurposed artist's studioin Havana, Daymé produced the record herself, takingthe reins to make 'Sonocardiogram' her most raw andarresting outing yet.A jazz-tipped record rooted in the rhythms of rumba, shedraws on the island's intertwined rituals of family, musicand religion. Ringing with echoes of the greats, songsnod to the likes of Tito Puente and La Lupe, inspirationswhich carry the sound of Cuba's sun-baked, vibrant dailyexistence. Odes to Santería deities are underscored bythe sacred frequencies of the batá drum, translated to beplayed on a Western drum kit. It's an intoxicating windowinto a singular artist's worldview.An important voice in Latin music, Daymé has collaboratedwith influential peers in Cuban music, like RobertoFonseca, and US heavyweights like Dexter Story andMiguel Atwood-Ferguson. From a recent appearance atPrimavera Festival, to sold out tours across Japan and theUS, her spectacular live show continues to draw crowdsaround the world
