Camerata Romeu

Camerata Romeu is a renowned all-female chamber music ensemble founded in 1993 by the Fundación Pablo Milanes. It’s led by Zenaida Romeu, one of the world’s few women conductors. Zenaida was born into a family of Cuban performers and composers spanning several generations.

They play everything from folk music and Mozart to fiery renditions of a new Cuban music using classical European form, yet drawing on the popular rhythms of the island taken from Africa, Spain, and indigenous cultures of Latin America.

Camerata Romeu has developed a unique sound that thills audiences in small Cuban towns, playing to packed houses in the United States and Europe.
