The Fast-Rising Cuban Songwriter and Vocalist Is A Top Revelation /New Discovery In This Year’s Latin Grammy Nominations– Recognized For Her Standout Recent Album Palabras Manuales

DanaySuarez_Integridad_SingleCover_Final

Danay Suárez, is a discovery well deserving of more international notice. She’s a voice of resilience and passionate self-invention…with moody, slow-building songs…[she] sings as often as delivering rhymes and often raps with melodies …[on] calls for self-reliance and musical autonomy… or life lessons: skepticism, humility, serenity. Her finale, built a six-beat Afro-Cuban rhythm and a modal melody into a compelling incantation.” –Jon Pareles, New York Times

 Singer-rapper Danay Suárez brings a calm message of strength and endurance in the face of change – Vibe

 “Cuban singer Danay Suarez was born a poet.. Suarez speaks softly, her voice weary with the weight of years of struggle to release into the world the music she’s long envisioned in her mind.. – Miami New Times

 “Danay Suarez is one of Cuba’s most underappreciated exports. In March, the vocalist and rapper released a new album, Palabras Manuales,that went criminally under-noticed. It’s a strong sophomore effort that showcases Suarez’s sophisticated style of rapping and beautiful singing voice, which intertwines itself with her evocative lyrics like a beguiling ocean spray… I’ve had the great fortune to see Suarez perform twice., and each time she mesmerized with her trance-like dancing to subtle reggae, hip-hop and Cuban beats as her voice lured the audience in. I am also fascinated by her strong artistic integrity; for Palabras Manuales, she made sure everything was exactly as she heard it in her head, even if it took years to bring it to fruition. …I’ve known from the moment I heard her sing that anything coming from Danay Suarez would be well worth the wait”- NPR

“Cuban singer Danay Suárez is a powerhouse of a musician who offers a kind of mash-up of rap and R&B, pouring out lyrics in a breathless stream of sound and thought. she stole the show” – Washington Post

 “There are a lot of assumptions one can make when learning about Danay Suarez, Cuba’s premiere rapper, and most if not all of them would be wrong. Instead of whatever ideas you might have about Cuba, female rappers, or even hip-hop itself, you are faced with laidback rhymes about humanity and the search for spiritual peace. Instead of serving a word attack, Danay is more about a soothing balm of verbal flow. Her soul-inflicted music effortlessly goes from singing to rapping and back to singing again in a manner she herself compares to jazz singers and instrumentalists” – Remezcla

 Meet The Cuban Hip-Hop Artist You Should Know…Despite challenges, Danay Suárez is taking Cuba’s music scene by storm… Suárez focuses on positive messages of self-empowerment and gender equality. Her music style, has garnered her Lauryn Hill and Erykah Badu comparisons Huffington Post

About Danay Suárez

Danay’s main asset as a young singer, born in Havana in 1985, is her versatility, her ability to move from Jazz to Hip-Hop, to the island’s traditional genres without any trouble at all. At the same time, she has the ability to evoke the sweet nothings of Nina Simone and Erykah Badu in a smooth, satiny formula in which the password is elegance. Tempered under the watchful eye of Aldo Rodríguez (Los Aldeanos), she developed artistically with the help of X Alfonso, until she took her giant step with the Havana Cultura Project, prior to the release of her first album, “Polvo de la Humedad” in 2014 (Universal Music, 2014). Since then, and after going through South By Southwest, Hip-Hop al Parque, LAMC, Central Park Summer-Stage, Ted Global Rio, Afro-Latino Festival, LEAF Festival, Méditerranée Festival Ashdod and Global Cuba Fest, all between 2013 and 2016, her acclaim has done nothing but grow, especially after the release of her second album, Palabras Manuales (Universal Latin Music, 2017).

About Palabras Manuales (Manual Words)

Palabras Manuales is an album that one has to listen to several times to discover all its secrets and intentions. The creative process led to composing the music that I would want to buy from another artist. I very much enjoyed weaving words with the melody, the meaning of each lyric  the rhyme  the passages in reverse or the moments in which I sing opera Lyrics. It is a true quilt of genres, but it is obvious that it is meant to be unique rather than pretentious. Ninety Five percent of the album was recorded in the studio, detail by detail analog. Even the delays were generated with the authentic machines, tape delays and not plugins. I’m overjoyed with my guest artists. I chose them for this specific piece and it was possible with their support and their belief in the project. for the first time, Stephen Marley sings in Spanish and I rap at the speed of “El B”  from “Los Aldeanos”. I love how Spanish and Hebrew blend on the track with Idan Raichel and adore Aja Monet’s Thoughts on the Jazz track.  What is special about this album? It has the flow that is sometimes lacking in the industry when it comes to these styles, in particular when they are brought to a Latin American context. It cannot be labeled as a specific genre. It is full of metaphors that must be reflected upon with time.
