Danay Suarez LIVE on April 12th at the Day at the Beach Concert Series on Miami Beach

Our good friend Michael Mutt from the band Electric Piquete invites you all to enjoy a live performance by up and coming Cuban American artist, Danay Suarez, this Saturday, April 12th on Miami Beach:

The popular North Beach Bandshell A Day at The Beach Concert Series hosted by the non-profit Community Arts and Culture organization plans its next outing Saturday, April 12, 2014, beginning at 6 p.m., and this time featuring the emerging Cuban singer / songwriter Danay Suárez. Local “afro-galactic / psychedelic” jam sextet the Nag Champayons will perform in support, as well as the Miami chapter of the School of Rock plus guest DJ Ephniko Dialecto.

Suárez, originally from La Habana, Cuba, has been generating a buzz throughout Latin America and Europe with her soulful voice, razor-sharp lyrics and innovative musical style.  Performing since the age of 15, Danay formed part of the Havana Cultura series, collaborating with various artists throughout the years. She has performed in European cities such as London, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, and Istanbul and in Latin America, Mexico, Panama and Colombia. In addition, the singer/ songwriter released her first album Polvo de la Humedad in 2008, which was followed by her Havana Cultura EP in 2010.

2013 was a milestone year for Danay's music career, winning a Premio Lucas for the song "Fly" under the Best Hip Hop Video category and headlining Colombia’s famed Hip Hop Al Parque music festival alongside legendary hip hop pioneers Public Enemy. Currently, Suárez is putting the finishing touches on her third studio album to be released in 2014 as Palabras Manuales and which will include a combination of hip hop, reggae, jazz and R&B sounds.

The North Beach Bandshell is located at 7275 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, 33141. Tickets are now available for $10 and can be purchased online here: For more information, please visit
