Event

OKAN Afro-Cuban Jazz Ensemble
THE CONCERT IS SOLD-OUT.  THERE MAY BE SOME TICKETS AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR IF SOME PEOPLE DON'T SHOW UP OR SPACES ARE ADDED.

Taking their name from the word for heart or soul in the Afro-Cuban religion of Santeria, OKAN fuses Afro-Cuban roots with jazz, folk and global rhythms in songs about immigration, bravery and love.

Embracing genres that have not historically fostered women artists outside of the role of singer, OKAN co-leaders, composers and multi-instrumentalists Elizabeth Rodriguez and Magdelys Savigne bring a fresh perspective to Latin and world jazz fusion through their powerful harmonies, incredible musicianship and potent lyrical content. They are joined by Miguel de Armas on piano, Roberto Riveron on bass, and Frank Martinez on percussion.

Born in Havana, Cuba, Elizabeth Rodriguez is a classically trained violinist who served as concertmaster for Havanas Youth Orchestra. Magdelys Savigne hails from Santiago de Cuba and graduated with honours in orchestral percussion from Havanas University of the Arts.  Both are JUNO-nominees for their work with Battle of Santiago and Grammy-nominees for their contributions to Jane Bunnett and Maqueque of which they are former members.
