Special guest Danay, flying direct from Cuba, will perform at this year’s Worldwide Music Awards on Saturday, February 6th of 2010. She is presented by Havana Cultura. Gilles Peterson discovered Danay when he recently teamed up with Havana Cultura to produce an album of what he considers to be the very best up and coming musical talent in Havana.
Danay is a 24 year-old who has already drawn comparisons with the likes of Erykah Badu and Jill Scott. Havana Cultura is a global art initiative from Havana Club rum, a window on contemporary Cuban culture developed to give the spirit of Havana a global voice.
The Worldwide Awards is an annual celebration of the best music championed by Gilles Peterson on his Worldwide and BBC Radio 1 show.
