Creating a riveting new fusion with her Cuban-influenced Folk/Rock sound and heartfelt lyrics, award-winning singer-songwriter Yazmin invites you to a CD release extravaganza for her third album, The Nautilus. A McNally Smith College of Music alumna and former Salsabrosa band member, Yazmin returns to the Twin Cities after recording this album in Havana with a team of Cuban musicians and producers.
The Nautilus tells a love story from beginning to end and takes the listener on a journey through every phase of one woman’s experience. It is all at once empowering and deeply vulnerable. The raw, human emotion of Yazmin’s songs is transmitted through her powerful stage presence and stellar 5-piece band made up of members from Cuba, Wisconsin and Minneapolis.
The night will also feature several guest musicians and dancers as well as Twin-Cities-based electro South American sensation Alma Andina. Get ready to dance! Alma Andina combines traditional instruments from South America with Latin rhythms such as Cumbia, Salsa, Guajira, Reggaeton, Reggae, and other danceable styles. DJ Julio will also be spinning salsa in between sets.
