CUBAN JAZZ DIVA PASSES


RIP MAYRA CARIDAD VALDES

WORLD OF CUBAN JAZZ IN MOURNING

Cuba is in mourning after learning of the passing on November 10th, 2019 of Mayra Caridad Valdes. The first lady of Cuban jazz was the daughter of Bebo Valdes and sister of Chucho Valdes. Her career began when she was a child and was helped by American stars like Harry Belafonte. In Cuba her first major appearance was on television on the variety show “Todo el Mundo Canta.” She later joined her brother Chucho’s band Irakere.


Her first single, “Goddess of the Sea,” was produced with the help of several Irakere veterans. Her last performance was this past spring during the Havana Biennial.

RIP Mayra Caridad!
