Singer, composer, arranger, and choir director, Daymé Arocena at only 24 years of age, has made an impression in Cuban music. She has been performing semi-professionally since the age of 8, and became lead singer with the big band Los Primos at 14. Dressed always in white she is visibly involved in induction into the Afro-Cuban religion of Santeria. With the success of her debut EP “Nueva Era” (Brownswood) in 2015, one year on, Daymé is ready to release her new project, “One Takes”, a collection of songs curated by Gilles Peterson.
