Aymee Nuviola first stepped into Havana’s fabled EGREM studios as a bright-eyed teenager – getting an early start as a professional singer with some of Cuba’s greatest bands of the time. When the prodigious Cuban singer, musician, composer and sonera returned to that very same spot decades later, she was completely overcome with emotion. Tears flowed as memories rushed back, and the magical spirit of the place took over. The power of that heartfelt return spilled over into the eleven tracks she would work on for the next few days. Backed by some of today’s greatest Cuban players and led by Latin super producer Sergio George, Nuviola made magic in crafting this concept album that takes Celia Cruz’s music back to Havana for the first time in half a century.
