This event has passed.

Yusa is a Cuban singer and songwriter, born in the Buena Vista district of HavanaCuba. Her music is recognised worldwide : in 2003, she was nominated at the prestigious BBC Radio 3 World Music Awards in two categories (Best Newcomer and Best of the Americas.)

Early life and education

Born in the Buena Vista district and brought up in the modern Alamar’s housing community of east Havana, Yusa’s childhood was cradled by music. She started studying guitar at the age of 6, at the Alejandro García Caturla elementary school. Then, attending the Amadeo Roldán Music Conservatory, she chose to concentrate on a particular type of Cuban guitar called the tres and started performing in Havana’s bars and clubs.

Career

Yusa is a multi-instrumentalist who is perfectly at ease playing guitarbass, as well as keyboard or percussion instruments. Her music is defined as a young and thoroughly modern musical style echoing with funkjazzrap, and soul, but keeping its connections to its deep African and Caribbean heritage. Yusa is often considered by the field of music as a poet, singing bittersweet songs, and compared with great singers as Tracy Chapman.

Her songs are very influenced by the life in Havana and by traditional Cuban music, even though she modernizes it, taking the true substance and arranging it, following the contemporary trends of the new Cuban wave.
