Entirely produced by Ana, Caribe will be her third album proper and is a continuation of her love letter to Latin American music taking influences from cumbia, son, bossa, samba, tango, rumba and salsa.
“In Latin music, women sing, and men do everything else. I decided to approach this new record without a music producer. I arrived in the studio with all the scores, written for a sextet, instrument by instrument. I have a classical background, I can play Brahms or Shostakovich, whose music is complicated. So why not take on a new challenge: entirely produce a Latin album that reflects my feminine sensitivity, my desire for positive celebration of the here and now, of ‘Alegria’, spontaneous joy.”
Havana – where is all started.
Ana Carla began her musical life at just 5 years old, introduced to piano by the late Miriam Valdés, sister of the living legend Chucho Valdés. She was first introduced to the cello, the instrument that would shape her, at 8 years old and appeared on stage for the first time in Havana when she was barely 10. Fast-forward from her musical upbringing in Havana to 2012, when she moved to Paris to study at the Conservatoire, a decisive move as it was the beginning of her solo career and Paris would become the base for her live show, from where she began spreading her sound throughout Europe (in 2022 she performed over 150 concerts).
