Afro-Cuban music can transform time and consciousness with its multilayered polyrhythms and hypnotic chants, taking us out of our ordinary state of mind and invoking the spirits of the Afro-Cuban pantheon of orishas.

2018 Grammy nominee Melvis Santa and her group Ashedí (translated to ‘invitation’ in the Lukumi dialect of Cuba) bring this powerful, ecstatic tradition to new spaces. A 4 piece format, which Melvis leads on piano and vocals while fronting a full percussion section of sacred batá drummers.
