Danay Suarez, alongside Stephen Marley and rapper El B, performed her soul-shaking fusion of hip-hop and reggae at North Beach Bandshell, one of Miami's most historic concert venues. Backed by a 20-plus-piece ensemble, Nu Deco assisted the Cuban Latin Grammy-nominated artist in delivering what is being described as a sonically spellbinding experience.
"She played tracks from her critically acclaimed Palabras Manuales, which led to her bringing out some very special guests," writes Prism's Pola Bunster. "Now, Nu Deco Ensemble has proven that any genre can work in the arena of classical music. But hip-hop? Even the most faithful found it hard to believe. But then El B took the stage and brought out the 808 we all never knew we needed. It was incredible to see him turn everyone in attendance into a born-again fan of hip-hop. A fraction of us could understand his quick-fire flow, but that didn’t matter. Everyone was equally spellbound."
