Together on stage for the first time ever……
HAILA MARIA MOMPIÉ
Exploding unto the Havana music scene in the late 90’s with the timba group Bamboleo, HAILA MARIA MOMPIE has established herself as the single most popular of the new generation of female singers in Cuba. Over the course of 4 solo album releases covering salsa, latin pop and boleros, HAILA MARIA MOMPIE has more than fulfilled the early promise of her being the modern incarnation of Celia Cruz.
A dynamic performer, gifted singer and composer, Leoni Torres spent seven years as the main voice and key songwriter for Cuba’s most popular timba band, La Charanga Habanera. In 2007, with the release of his latin pop infused CD ‘Bajo La Piel’, LEONI TORRES has established himself as a dominant star in his own right – performing at concerts across the island and touring in Mexico.
Caribe Girls are a 12 women orchestra who embody the universal appeal of Cuban music. Blending their rich repertoire of contagious salsa Cubana with show stopping choreography, CARIBE GIRLS have spent much of the career outside the island entertaining audiences in Europe and Latin America.
