IBA present a first and unique presentation in Boston of Puerto Rican songwriter Yarimir Cabán (MIMA). Accompanying her will be Ariel Robles on bass, Kya Pérez on percussion and Johannes Peters on sound design. Special guest: Puerto Rican "Cuatrista" Fabiola Méndez.
Better known in the musical world as MIMA, Yarimir Cabán is a Puerto Rican singer, song-writer and poet. Inspired by traditional folk rhythms, she explores new sounds and textures both live and in the studio, giving her music a DIY spin. MIMA cruises through Neo-Caribbean sounds, Afroamerican soul and psychedelia, achieving a “poetic synthesis of Caribbean rhythms” that never goes unnoticed. Her fusion of magical storytelling and musical knowledge give birth to a unique narrative, often paying tribute to death through her personification of “lamentos” and “aguinaldos”.
