8 Apr 2022

From powerhouse Cuban composer Eliane Correa comes Signo de Fuego, meaning Sign of Fire, a Timba release from our SOMOS MÁS label. Filled with powerful female energy coupled with the fiery sounds of the 24-piece all-star Latin band, La Evolución.

Having toured with The World of Hans Zimmer among so many others, Eliane has vast experience as a session musician, and has played all over the world and at the likes of the legendary Glastonbury and Roundhouse (London) and is now the organiser of the London Latin Jazz Festival.

Staying true to her Cuban roots, in this release Eliane pulled together an all-star line-up of Latin American performers to form her band, La Evolución, to produce this exciting Timba album. A style close to Salsa, the genre was particularly prevalent during the 90s and is still one of the most popular styles in Cuba, taking its influence from Jazz, Afro-Cuban Rhythms, and Funk.

Listen to the album today across all major streaming platforms.

MORE ABOUT ELIANE

Eliane Correa is a young Latina pianist, MD and composer based between London and Havana; trained classically at the Luxembourg Conservatoire, she went on to study piano and composition at the renowned Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana, Cuba, in 2005, then relocating to London in 2007 to study a BA & MA Ethnomusicology at SOAS (part of University College, London).

Eliane’s unique sound equally reflects her Latin heritage and London musical melting pot experience; in both her compositions and playing, there is a lot of attention paid to the African roots of the music that she identifies with, but her classical musical upbringing remains weaved into her, to create an intricate, sophisticated and unique sound.
