Cuban Pianist-singer-songwriter Glenda del E gives Cuban music a fresh new take with her exceptional musicality, her piano and her voice… “This is not only about her original compositions and arrangements, but also about producer Dave Gray’s magic touch, the gift of talented musicians and a family legacy.”
“Q-ban Mixology” evolved from Glenda’s trademark, positive and inspiring lyrics and melodies for all ages, pop-soul hooks and funk-jazz influenced arrangements defy generally held notions of what Cuban music is and defines her truly unique, genuine and her real sound.
Her music reflects what she is: A strong academic trained musician transcending frontiers and a role model for future generations.
