The day began a bit pear-shaped when London Lucumi Choir’s creator, Daniela De Oshun locked herself in the bathroom. Fortunately she escaped to bring her merry flock of choristers to AWIL, sharing lead vocals with Mish Aminoff and special guest Yosvani Diaz from Havana. Many of LLC’s members have held a long term fascination for Cuba, echoing the salsa dance craze that swept dance floors worldwide  in the 90s after Buena Vista Social Club won a Grammy and Wim Wenders documented their collaboration with Ry Cooder onto celluloid. For some, salsa was a waist-slimming fleeting fad, whereas for others, Cuba became a lifelong passion to explore beyond  Revolution,  Raul, and Fidel Castro. 

Yosvani Diaz
LLC is one of the outfits that  digs deeper into Cuba’s past,  beyond sun-soaked beaches in Varadero and hip-gyrating, to  explore the legacy of the West African slave route, Yoruba culture and Orisha tradition. Along with this dedicated community choir, two awesome albums have emerged from this exploration – ‘Un Solo Palo’ and ‘Lullaby For Naila’ -  with a third is on its way in January.

You’ll be the first to hear extracts from it if you head down to AWIL-Live on December 9th when LLC perform at The Southbank Centre and bathroom visits by Daniela are strictly prohibited. www.londonlucumichoir.com  https://www.facebook.com/events/338138769897098/
