Marta Elena’s Orchestra

From Havana to Toronto-Cuban Connection

Not all ‘salseros’ have been male artists; in the history of Salsa, there is some exception to that rule; and Marta Elena is one of the names of that exception.

  • June 11, 2022
    8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Singer, Composer, Percussionist and Band leader Marta Elena belongs to a younger generation of Cuban musicians who are happy to honour the island nation’s Afro-Latin musical roots while looking for new ways to express the music that courses through the vein of the country.

Marta Elena’s professional performance started at the age of 18, singing as part of the famous Cuban chorus Company of Zarzuelas and Operettas.

In Canada, highlight performances include her Koerner Hall appearance as a Guest of Hilario Duran and his Latin Jazz Big Band with Horacio El Negro Hernandez.

‘De la Habana a Toronto’ is her new album made thanks to Ontario and Toronto Arts Councils; it showcases an irresistible collection of danceable and delicious rhythms.
