  • Location: Main Stage at Surrey Art Centre (13750 88 Ave, Surrey)

Accompanied by musicians Jeremy Ledbetter, Frank Martinez, and Roberto Riveron for the Surrey Arts Centre’s Main Stage show, OKAN will dazzle the audience with a spirited performance jam-packed with high-energy Afro-Cuban jazz, stories, and dance. Like a breath of talented fresh air, this show is sure to be a full experience audience members will remember for years to come.

Fusing Afro-Cuban roots with jazz, folk, and global rhythms, OKAN takes their name from the word for heart in their Afro-Cuban religion of Santeria.

With vocals in Spanish, English and Spanglish, OKAN is led by Cuban-born violinist and vocalist Elizabeth Rodriguez and percussionist and vocalist Magdelys Savigne, both Grammy and Latin-Grammy nominees. Passionate advocates for freedom of expression, queer rights, and gender equality, OKAN has gained a reputation for their powerful live performances, which showcase their incredible harmonies, virtuosic musicianship, potent lyrics as well as an unfailing ability to connect with audiences on a deep emotional level.
