Olga Cerpa & Mestisay

Olga Cerpa is the most important female voice of the Canary Islands. Nominated for two Latin Grammys, she has shared the stage with such artists as Omara Portuondo and Joan Manuel Serrat, among others. Cerpa and Mestisay use “Jallo,” an insular word that refers to the objects that the sea throws to the Canary shores, to create splendid songs inspired by the musical influences that reach the beaches of their native land. Latin America, Portugal, Cape Verde and the African continent leave their mark as they revisit island songs that have been “found” in these years of musical journeys and that they rediscover for themselves and their audience through original arrangements. Olga Cerpa y Mestisay will be presenting their latest production, Palosanto, where they invited 17 renowned guitarists from around the world to record with them. Co-presented with the Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center. Part of the International Latino Cultural Center’s year-round Chicago Latino Music Series.
