Vocal baklava with some Cuban spice.

About the Album

Jane Bunnett's continuing quest to seek out and present musical talent untapped and unheard beyond the confines of the island Nohas led her down many roads, and it was during a trip 30 years ago to Havana, Cuba she discovered then- unknown musicians and formed the all-star ensemble Maqueque (pronounced “Mah-Keh-Keh", meaning “the energy of a young girl's spirit.") Their 2014 self-titled debut CD was awarded a much-deserved Juno Award for Best Group Jazz Album of the Year. Jane Bunnett's assembly of all-star Cuban musicians, the sextet which includes herself and five extraordinary young females, ensured a spotlight for their fluid, seamless music. “Everything I've done," Jane says with pride, “has led up to this group, which is the perfect vehicle for now." Maqueque currently includes Yissy Garcia on drums, Dánae Olano on piano, Magdelys Savigne on batá drums and congas, Elizabeth Rodriguez on violin and vocals and Celia Jiménez on bass. Maqueque often features guest stars Melvis Santa on percussion and vocals, as well as Dayme Arocena assisting vocals.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
