Yerba Buena Gardens Festival 2017 | SF

Between May and October in 2017, the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival presents over 75 free performances on three outdoor stages in Yerba Buena Gardens.

Admission is free and entertainment includes music, theater, dance, cultural events, educational and children’s programs.

The sensational young Cuban vocalist Daymé Arocena introduces her gorgeous new album Cubafonía to Yerba Buena Gardens. A former member of the extraordinary Jane Bunnett & Maqueque sextet, Arocena is rapidly gaining international attention as a solo artist.

Still in her mid-20s, she’s been recording for influential British producer Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings, honing a sound informed by jazz, soul and R&B. But her travels have inspired her to delve back into her Cuban roots, and Cubafonía is the work of a brilliant artist bringing an international perspective to the verdant rhythmic traditions of her homeland.

This is a rare opportunity to catch an emerging superstar on the rise.
