The Cuban Research Institute is pleased to announce the eleventh installment of its Classically Cuban concert series, featuring the Grammy and Emmy award-winning artist Albita Rodríguez.

Albita Rodríguez is a Cuban-American singer, producer, and composer, known in the music world simply as Albita. Born in Havana, Albita is one of the most authentic Cuban singers who has been able to move the world through her music. As a young singer, she made herself noticed by her dynamic contribution to the renovation of traditional Cuban music and adding a very personal style to her compositions, musical arrangements, and singing. Since arriving in Miami in 1993, her electrifying and mesmerizing performance of contagious Cuban music has elevated her career to an international level, performing throughout Europe, Latin America, Australia, Africa, and Asia. Albita has recorded 15 albums, 11 of which have been Grammy nominated. Her latest production is Mujeres con cajones (2014), based on the Peruvian folk genre of the cajón and recorded during a live concert in Miami.

This event is cosponsored by FIU's Kimberly Green Latin American and Caribbean Center.
