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.
