OKAN brings its sizzling fusion of Afro-Cuban roots with jazz, folk and global rhythms back to the TDMJF stage. With vocals in Spanish, English and Spanglish, OKAN is led by Cuban-born violinist and vocalist Elizabeth Rodriguez and percussionist/vocalist Magdelys Savigne, both Grammy and Latin Grammy nominees. They take the group’s name from the word for “heart” in their region of Santeria, Cuba. OKAN’s JUNO-winning sophomore release “Espiral” debuted in first place on Canada’s !Earshot charts and was included on NPR’s top 10 Alt Latino and CBC Music’s Top 20 of 2020. www.okanmusica.com
