An exclusive New York City concert by Mestisay, one of the most popular groups from the Canary Islands, starring Olga Cerpa, its lead singer since 1986. Graced with an exquisite vocal quality and an arresting stage presence, Cerpa is considered the most important singer from Canarias today, and is certainly the most critically acclaimed female voice from Spain in the last two decades. Throughout its long artistic trajectory, the group has adopted a transatlantic repertoire, underscoring the mixed musical culture of the Canary Islands, including a rich Cuban component, which will be highlighted in this concert.
