Gema Corredera in Concert at the Miami Dade County Auditorium

Saturday, April 6, 2013, 8:00 p.m.

Gema Corredera, one of Miami’s most loved musical treasures, will be performing highlights from her first solo album, Derramando Luz (Spreading Light) with a very special guest Marta Valdes, on Saturday, April 6th, at 8:00 p.m. at Miami Dade County Auditorium, presented by FUNDarte and Artes Miami.

This celebrated vocalist and guitarist brings her exceptional voice and musicianship to the local stage with a sound influenced as much by her Cuban roots as by Jazz, Brazilian, Opera, and Flamenco. Her voice sashays fluidly through a multitude of genres, weaving a rich tapestry of Jazz and Cuban fusion that continuously recalls the tropical sensuality of Cuban Rumba, Son, “Filin,” Bolero and Afro-Caribbean rhythms. With a stage presence that is unassuming yet intimately captivating, Gema Corredera is an earthy, sophisticated singer with an amazing vocal range and a versatile performance language that is intimate, smooth, funky, playful, and undeniably seductive.

Gema Corredera returns to the stage as a solo artist with a brand new sound, a brand new band and a startling new CD: Derramando Luz. Together with Cuban modern-jazz maestro and Grammy® winner Yosvany Terry as her musical director, Gema has crafted a multi-genre masterpiece that combines a jazz-infused palette of filin, rumba, cha-cha-chá, and vestiges of Cuban timba with elements of R&B and classical music.

Derramando Luz features a compilation of meticulously selected songs written by leading contemporary composers: Marta Valdés, Pancho Céspedes, Pedro Luis Ferrer, Julio Fowler and the members of the revered Habana Abierta, an internationally-renowned Cuban group, as well as Luis Barbería, Vanito Brown, Boris Larramendi, Alejandro Gutierrez and José Luis Medina.
