On Friday, July 11th, S.O.B.'s welcomes Cuban sonera Xiomara Laugart for a live performance at it's weekly Salsa Groove Afterwork concert series. Xiomara is a living legend in her native Cuba, having recorded more than 15 albums, been the lead singer of the New York-based Yerba Buena, and having worked with musical legends from Tito Puente to Albita to Erykah Badu. She recently portrayed one of the most important figures in Latin culture, Celia Cruz, in the first ever theater production based on the legendary late Cuban artist Off-Broadway.

Xiomara is both the essence of the old Cuba, with its rhythmic folk songs, fused with a blend of today’s directness and clarity of voice, which is eventually matched with her deep laugh. Ms. Laugart recently released her worldwide debut album for Chesky Records, a lavish and sophisticated collection of old and new songs written by Meme Solís and Andrés Levin, Descemer Bueno and with arrangements by Octavio Kotan and Axel Tosca. Until recently, Ms. Laugart has been the leading vocalist in Yerba Buena, a New York collective with a brilliant mix of rhythms to which she added her African and Caribbean legacy.

Don't miss the chance to catch one of Cuban music's prized jewels when Xiomara Laugart graces the stage at the legendary S.O.B.'s on Friday, July 11th.
