Before unfurling her costume, Yaite has traveled a long and sometimes hard road. Everything starts in Cuba where she was born, in the heart of an awe-inspiring musical cauldron on which reigns the figure of her father, Jesus "Aguaje" Ramos, an exceptional trombonist who is also the artistic director of the Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club. Family parties are gatherings of extraordinary musicians, the cream of Cuban music, to the sounds of thousands of songs and drums.
Today, she presents "Bajo El Mismo Cielo" her new album, produced by Marc Babylotion Damblé, French Beat Maker/Sound Engineer.
Joining this great party, this flamboyant and orgiastic round, is a slew of distinguished guests: Celso Piña and Serko Fu (Mexico), Manteiga from BATUK (South Africa), Rincon Sapiência (Brazil), Sergio Aguilera (Spain), ... The tracks of "Bajo El Mismo Cielo" are rich in social meaning and claim their roots in the traditions of urban music.
