Discography

Voy / 2018

The album is fed by multiple influences of Cuban culture. The starting point is the cultural diversity project “Para Mestizar” (“Cuba Melting Pot”), conceived in the previous album of Eme. The main focus are the arrangements of the songs, as each one touches closely the world’s music and is orchestrated with a rich variety of rhythms and percussions.

After touring the Malecon, we visit the neighborhoods of El Vedado and Miramar. In addition, we discovered Havana through the portrait of the Cuban writer and Cervantes Prize 1977 Alejo Carpentier.
