OSAIN DEL MONTE 

          Panter Calderón, the long-time director of the Yoruba Andabo group, is a veritable prodigy of Afro-Cuban percussion. In 2012, he created his own group, Osain del Monte, bringing together the emerging generation of the young singers, dancers, and percussionists of Havana. They took the main stages of Havana to promote music emanating from the most “Afro” sacred rituals in the Cuban tradition (santeria, pablo, abacua, iyesa, rumba, columbia), and within a few months they became ambassadors of Afro-Cuban identity throughout the country. Spectators from around the world, including legends like Madonna and the Rolling Stones, crowded in to catch their incredible shows.

 

BOBI CÉSPEDES

A vocalist in the Cuban son tradition, composer, band leader and educator, Bobi first won international recognition as director and lead vocalist for the award winning band, Conjunto Céspedes. She claims her rightful place as an icon in the tradition with a resonant voice and dynamic stage presence and leads audiences on a journey from Yoruba incantations to the Cuban son.
