John Santos Presents De Akokán

Mar 21, 2013 07:30 PM

De Akokán, which means “from the heart” in Yoruba, is a project based on the 2011 duo album Buscando la esquina by Ukranainian-born Cuban singer-songwriter Pavel Urkiza and Puerto Rican reed expert Ricardo Pons. This collaboration explores filín, an expansive Cuban song style that draws heavily on jazz, and rhythms from West Africa, Brazil, the Mediterranean, and India.
