Women-led contemporary Afro-Cuban roots 

The meaning of OKAN is ‘Soul’ in the Afro Cuban religion Santeria.
 
Living and collaborating in the intensely multicultural city of Toronto has enriched OKAN’s composition and performances, with influences from Turkey, Brazil and New Orleans. “One of the most exciting Cuban projects to have emerged out of the Toronto Latin scene, OKAN brings powerful vocals and high-level musicianship to their fusion of traditional rhythms, jazz and soul” (J. Ortega, Lula Lounge).
 
OKAN has performed at the Beaches Jazz Festival and Canada’s first Women in Percussion Festival, playing as a trio up to a sextet. Elizabeth Rodriguez and Magdelys Savigne are ready to take their highly original and impactful project to the world!

Run time: TBD
