Jazz-Violin, Afro-Cuban

Yilian Canizares

| Cuba/Switzerland

She traverses memories of Chopin, of Chucho Valdés, of New York jazz, of the imperious audacity of Santería ceremonies.

Cuban-Swiss violinist and vocalist, Yilian Cañizares, returns with an album that blurs the boundaries between jazz, Afro-cuban music, classical and more. Invocación expresses the diversity of her musical universe; a passionate and fascinating album from an artist who draws on her Cuban roots but refuses to lock herself into clichés. Yilian represents the young Cuban musicians who are gifted, creative and proud of their traditions.

A songwriter able to play and sing at the same time, with a genuine and powerful presence onstage, she has many feathers in her cap. For her second album with Naïve Records she has teamed up with Alê Siqueira, the artistic producer known for his work with Roberto Fonseca, Mayra Andrade and Omara Portuondo. Between tradition and modernity, lyricism and mesmerizing rhythms, we are plunged into the heart of an eclectic and hybrid music.

Yilian says of the album, “This is my most honest work to date, a real portrait of myself, my lived experiences and all that has shaped me. Above all it’s a homage to loved ones no longer here: my grandfather, family friends, slave ancestors, singers and poets who have taught me so much.”
