Xiomara Laugart and Axel Tosca

Saturday, November 11
8pm to 9:30pm

 

Xiomara is both the essence of the Cuba of old, with its rhythmic folk songs, fused with a blend of today’s directness and clarity of voice, which is eventually matched with her deep laugh. It is that distinctive laugh that will soon captivate American audiences from all walks of life with her swing style in all of her Cuban splendor.

 

In 2007, Xiomara left Yerba Buena and embarked on an adventure that held the enormous responsibility of representing one of the most important figures in Latin culture, Celia Cruz, the Queen of Latin Music, in the first ever theatre production based on the legendary late Cuban artist. CELIA: The Life & Music of Celia Cruz, raised its curtain on September 26, 2007 at New World Stages on Broadway, with a massive critical acclaim, highlighting the amazing portrayal and incomparable voice of Xiomara Laugart.

 

"Xiomara’s seductive style left its indelible mark on Cuba for a decade, leaving behind scores of fans in her wake.”“Xiomara, “la negra” (the black girl) as this young singer is affectionately called by her legion of followers, manages to sing every style from her homeland with ease, from bolero to salsa to danzon to guaracha to funky dance tunes.” 

 

Monika Oliveira & The Brazilians

Saturday, November 11
Sets at 10PM 11:30PM & 1AM

Monika Oliveira is a singer/songwriter, a native of Rio de Janeiro, living and performing in the United States. She is a fresh and exciting vocal presence on the Brazilian music scene today in New York. Monika's voice enchants and entrances through her innate rhythmic feel and phrasing. She has performed in many venues throughout the city including the famous Madison Square Garden. She combines her love of Brazil's musical heritage and her love of Jazz into a sultry variation on both - Brazilian Jazz that is at once moving and rhythmic, pure and passionate.

Monika Oliveira, and her band, The Brazilians, will transport you to Brazil. She is currently performing “The MPB (Popular Brazilian Music) Show”, a musical experience that incorporates popular regional styles of Brazilian music like Baião, Bossa, Maracatu and Samba with the sophistication of Jazz and the attitude of Rock and Roll.

Her positive high-energy stage presence, along with her talented band, are infectious and she engages her audience to join her on the dance floor for some Bossa Nova to hip shaking Samba. It’s obvious that Monika Oliveira loves her music and once you meet her you will love her too.
