About us

Cuban composer/cellist/singer Ana Carla Maza reconnects to her Havana upbringing and Latin American heritage with Caribe, a self-produced album featuring a vibrant brass-heavy quartet. The recording pays homage to Afro-Cuban descarga jams of the 1950s while exploring the rich rhythms of the Caribbean, Argentinean tangos, and hints of Brazilian bossa-jazz and samba, resulting in a joyful musical fusion.

Born in Cuba when Wim Wenders was recording Buena Vista Social Club, the cellist and singer virtuoso Ana Carla Maza made her debut on stage at the age of ten and never stoped evolving internationally from then on.

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).
