Blending jazz, Afro-Cuban and classical forms, and world rhythms, OKAN – meaning Soul in the Afro Cuban religion Santeria – takes inspiration from the roots of Cuban music and contributes to the contemporary evolution of these powerful traditions in the global context. Embracing genres and roles that have historically been dominated by men, co-leaders, composers and multi-instrumentalists Elizabeth Rodriguez and Magdelys Savigne, bring a fresh perspective to Latin and world jazz fusion through their powerful vocals, incredible musicianship and potent lyrical content.
