Havana, Sept. 30 (RHC)-- Cuban vocalist Eme Alfonso performed a three-song set from Havana on Wednesday, in the framework of Tiny Desk Home Concerts, a video series of live concerts hosted by National Public Radio in the United States.
Alfonso is among a selected group of Cuban musicians, who have participated in the prestigious project.
From Sept. 15 through Oct. 15, Tiny Desk is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with an "El Tiny" takeover of the (home) concert series, featuring several musicians from all corners of Latinidad.
Eme Alfonso’s history and music is centered around the Afro-Cuban spiritual practice that some call santería. Her vocals reflect also her love for soul and jazz.
