Presented with the support of the Consulat Général de France à Toronto.
An explosive mix of cumbia, hip-hop, dancehall and more guaranteed to bring the party in their Toronto debut.
Cuban singer, flautist and percussionist Yaite Ramos Rodriguez, aka La Dame Blanche. La Dame Blanche delivers a powerful and compelling sound, which summons the spirits. Paris-based Yaite is internationally sought after for her incomparable energy and effortless fusion of rap, reggae and cumbia. Her second album “2” related stories that had yet to be told. Yaite now tours her new release “Bajo El Mismo Cielo,” which delivers strong social messages rooted in urban culture.
Everything starts in Cuba where Yaite was born, in the heart of an awe inspiring musical cauldron on which reigns the figure of her father, Jesus “Aguaje” Ramos, an exceptional trombonist who is also the artistic director of the Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club. Family parties are gatherings of extraordinary musicians inspired by the sounds of thousands of songs and drums.
