In the run up to A celebration of Cuban music at The Jazz Cafe featuring Diáspora 12-piece band on 4th September, we're running an artist focus on the players joining us for the night.
This month, we are very excited to be joined by very special guest vocalist Ingrid Rueda. Colombian born singer and songwriter, Ingrid Rueda loves performing everything from the Andes to Flamenco, from rock to salsa and finds melodies to accompany the lyrics she composes which she describes as “the singing of hearty moments in life”. Ingrid was born in Bogotá-Colombia and grew up in Ibagué, a place among the Andes named "Musical City of Colombia".
A well-travelled and accomplished vocalist, Ingrid was awarded twice at the Tabaiba International Song Contest in the Canary Islands and was finalist nominee Vocalist of the year at the Latin American Music Awards2014. She has taken part in different albums with bands such as Solatino Ingrid & Cindy “Tip of my tongue”, Bahareque “Estrellas para ti” and Los Soneros “Esto es lo que hay”. She has also added some of her compositions to the mentioned recordings. "Flor Salvaje", "Calm Down", "Rumbero en la Luna", "Rogao" and recently "Our Secret" are among her single productions.
Ingrid is based in London and currently performs throughout the UK and internationally in her team - The Latin Code, ThE WhEeL SisTerS, Mexican Mariachi Las Adelitas UK, Salsa-Latin pop band Palenke Latin and Andrean-fusion all-female band WARMI Uk.
