Global Cuba Fest: - Osdalgia & Doble Filo
Miami Light Project and FUNDarte are proud to present the US premiere of Cuban chanteuse Osdalgia, and seminal Cuban Hip Hop band Doble Filo in a free Global Cuba Fest concert on July 9, 2011 at the Wynwood Walls during Second Saturday Gallery Walk.
Heralded as the daughter of the Buena Vista Social Club, Osdalgia is one of the most multifaceted songstresses of contemporary Cuban music. Through her smoldering voice, humor and beauty, Osdalgia has enraptured audiences the world over with her songs of rumba, emotion filled boleros and salsa. Osdalgia’s Miami performance marks a long awaited and eagerly anticipated debut in the United States.
Performing for the first time Miami as a group, Doble Filo is one of Cuba’s most acclaimed music groups with their fusion of traditional Cuban rhythm, jazz, rock and Hip Hop. Fronted by Yrak Saenz and Edgaro, through their music, Doble Filo also aims to improve social conditions by encouraging listeners to find themselves. The members veer away from lyrics that advocate violence or belittle women. Their main philosophy is avoiding negativity.
Presented during Wynwood Gallery Walk, this free concert offers a perfect way to for gallery walk attendees to cap off their cultural evening!
