Description

La Dame Blanche, delivers a powerful and irresistible mix that summons the spirits and compels the body to dance.

Part of the Belfast International Arts Festival

With her explosive mix of hip-hop, cumbia, dancehall and reggae, the Cuban singer, flautist and percussionist Yaite Ramos Rodriguez, a.k.a. La Dame Blanche, delivers a powerful and irresistible mix that summons the spirits and compels the body to dance. Everything started in Cuba, where she was born in the heart of an awe-inspiring musical cauldron. Her father, Jesus ‘Aguaje’ Ramos, is an exceptional trombonist and the artistic director of the Buena Vista Social Club. Yaite has always been determined to find her own voice.

Having studied classical flute at Havana’s Escuela Nacional de Arte, she moved to Paris where she has now spent almost two decades becoming La Dame Blanche. Her Afro-Cuban roots are always present and her songs express stories of female empowerment, Santería spirituality, and life in the barrio.

This is sure to be roof-raising performance in The Empire!
