Telmary y Habanasana

Telmary y Habanasana (CUB)Telmary is a street poet from Havana who has emerged as a trendsetting leader in Cuba’s razor-sharp hip-hop and urban music scene. A rapper, musician and spoken-word artist-activist, hers is a distinctive voice. At times deep and soulful, at times pacey and aggressive, her voice proclaims positive, empowering messages quite in contrast with, let’s say, the genre’s blander, commercial face. An electrifyingly contemporary fusion of traditional Afro-Cuban and Latin rhythms with idea-sparks of urban funk, jazz, hip hop and slam poetry. Telmary Díaz is a history-making voice to be remembered.
