Music

I am not in Cuba. Cuba is in me.

Throughout my life, I’ve found myself on stage. First in theater and, now, in music. In 2013, I embarked on the path of a new creative endeavor — in the form of song. This venture complements my artistic, theatrical and directorial oeuvre and marks my first professional foray into singing. Exploring the traditional Cuban songs my mother sang while in exile in Spain, I released my first full length album, Deseo, in early 2013. Within this album, I explore metaphors of my native country and associated tensions of being forced into exile as a child. My second album, Duele, which was released in June, 2019 is a fusion of cuban master composers' old school tunes and contemporary beats.
