On Friday, October 6, a slew of Latin pop stars helped kick off Seaspice Live headlined by 3 time Grammy nominee Diana Fuentes. The room was buzzing with the arrivals of Motiff, Gente de Zona, Julio Reyes Copello and Carlucho to the Miami Riverside hotspot as each greeted the lady of the evening and taking their seats to watch the show.
Diana Fuentes, the second Cuban singer-songwriter signed on by Sony Music after Celia Cruz, is a leader in the flourishing generation of performers and musicians from Cuba. Her second album, Planeta Planetario, was a joint artistic collaboration with renowned Puerto Rican musician and producer, Eduardo Cabra (Visitante), member of the band Calle 13.
She started her musical career in 2001 after she joined the Afro Cuban fusion band Sintesis, who was nominated for a Latin Grammy in 2002 for the album Habana Flor de Piel and she went on to collaborate with musicians like Descemer Bueno (singer-songwriter of “Bailando”) Carlos Varela (singer-songwriter of theme song “Una Palabra” of the movie “Men on Fire” starring Denzel Washington), Tommy Torres (singer ft “La Fortuna”), Pablo Milanes and Joan Manuel Serrat ( Cuba Canta a Serrat ), to name a few.
Her latest single release, “La Vida Me Cambio” from her new Album, “Todo Esta Pasando” was a special collaboration with Gente De Zona; where both artists joined forces to create a summer hit single produced by Grammy award winner Motiff and filmed in Cuba by the famous director Alejandro Perez of “Bailando” and “La Gozadera”. The single is an explosion of energy and happiness with colorful choreography which will make you get up and dance.
Dinner and a show, guests at Seaspice Live enjoyed a powerful performance by the indie singer while enjoying signature Mediterranean cuisine by Executive Chef Angel Leon. Diana Fuente’s performance marked the new live music season at the riverside hotspot.
