Daymé Arocena and her group are one of the most exciting and talented new groups from Cuba. Daymé is musically and personally much more mature than her age of 25. She composes and arranges most of the songs her group performs and has an extremely engaging stage prescence. She describes her style as being herself on stage and two of her most influential artists are Nina Samone (Amerian jazz singer and pianist) and Cuban singer La Lupe. Daymé considers herself to be a jazz singer and I would descrbie her syle as a combination of Cuban folkloric and popular music, soul music and jazz. Her trio consists of young virtuosos - Jorge Luis Lagarza on keyboards, Roly Herrera on drum set and Rafael Aldama on bass, all of whom are great soloists.
