With her explosive mix of hip-hop, cumbia, dancehall and reggae, the Cuban singer, flautist and percussionist Yaite Ramos Rodriguez, a.k.a. La Dame Blanche, delivers a powerful and compelling sound which summons the spirits.
Yaite has traveled a long and sometimes hard road. Everything started in Cuba, where she was born in the heart of an awe-inspiring musical cauldron. Her father, Jesus "Aguaje" Ramos, is an exceptional trombonist who is also the artistic director of the Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club. Family parties are gatherings of extraordinary musicians, the cream of Cuban music, to the sounds of thousands of songs and drums.
"On paper, this shouldn't really work: Afro-Cuban music, hip-hop, dancehall, cumbia and classical flute. But thanks to La Dame Blanche's serious musical chops, the 'Woman in White' from Havana (by way of Paris) pulls off this stylistic hat-trick with outsized swagger and style." (NPR Music)
Opening the show will be Engine.
Engine combine Afro-Latin rhythms, blue notes, rock attitude, and flamenco spirit - all fused together in theatrically charged performances.
We did a series of 8 small shows with Engine last year. Dubbed Encuentros Intimos con Engine, these events connected the visiting Franco-Argentinian band with local musicians. Word of these magical encounters spread like wildfire, and after the first one the entire run was sold out. Two recordings were made from their visit - one of the live Encuentros and one of new music - all full of local artist guests. We will be launching a new run of Enceuntros Intimos con Engine on March 18, this time in both Santa Fe and Albuquerque. Click here for a full schedule of Encuentros Intimos con Engine.
