The Creole Choir Of Cuba


“One of the outstanding releases of the year.” The Sunday Times

“A potent force of positivity.” The Guardian

“There are full throated solos and passionate choral responses in Creole, creating a rich, ringing sonority which is sometimes defiant, sometimes soothing, but always thrilling.” Evening Standard

The most original vocal sound to come out of Cuba in a long time. Their mesmerising sound, jubilant dancing and deep spirit made them a big hit in this country at the Edinburgh Festival, after a run at the London Jazz Festival and an appearance on Later with Jools Holland, they’re doing their first national tour.

Irresistible, wild melodies are driven by richly textured harmonies and shifting Caribbean rhythms. This is passionate singing by a group celebrating roots, resistance and the rhythms of life.

Their debut album Tande-La is out now on Realworld. Click here to listen to a track from the album. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to read fantastic reviews.

"The sweet harmonic sounds and melodies from the Creole Choir of Cuba brought audience members to their feet with tears of joy... Spiritually uplifting... A must see for the whole family!" The Voice
