Eliane Correa & En El Aire Project + London Lucumi Choir
Eliane Correa is a Cuban pianist, composer and bandleader. Tipped by BBC 6Music’s Gilles Peterson as one of the freshest new sounds to come out of Havana, her music is a genre-defying melting pot of sounds. The strong presence of Afro-Cuban roots and folk music with batá drumming and rumba rhythms is complemented by the newest grooves of contemporary soul and funk, bringing a fresh take on what is “Latin” and what is “jazz”. Eliane has recently released her debut album Rumba Con Flores, a fluid tribute to the past and present sounds of neo-soul, R&B and urban Latino music. Support comes from The London Lucumi Choir formed by Afro Cuban Singer extraordinaire Martha Galarraga and musician Daniela Rosselson De Armas and assisted by Dave Pattman (Omo Aña).
