Descarga Musical with Ade Meyi
Date: Saturday, August 22
Time: 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Platform: FB Live (

A new Cuban-Canadian project in Toronto,  Ade Meyi is the next generation of Cuban music in Canada. Meaning “crown of two” in lucumí, the Yoruba-derived liturgical language of Cuban Santeria, Ade Meyi fuses funk, RnB, soul, flamenco and Cuban trova with influences as diverse as Amy Winehouse, Síntesis, X Alfonso, Daniel Caesar, Pablo Milanes, Jamiroquai, Elena Burke, Mercedes Sosa and Camarón de la Isla. For this performance, Ade Meyi continues to explore their Afro-Cuban roots by introducing a tambor batá sound mixed with funk and soul music. With a smaller ensemble of piano, a percussion set and vocals, Ade Meyi’s set for VLACC and LMAC will include originals by co-leaders Zamira Lacosta and Tony Riveron.
