Sit back and enjoy music as you’ve never heard it before! The Koubek Center is virtual, and brings you music from some of our favorite local musicians! Enjoy unique 30-minute musical performances on Facebook and Instagram Live with Miami-based artists. Get ready to be blown away by this week’s mini-music concert starring Yusa!

The work of Cuban singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Yusa is as influenced by Brazilian music, and North American funk, soul and jazz as by Nueva Trova and son. Her singing (her rich, sultry voice has elicited comparisons to Tracy Chapman), her poetic lyrics, and broad musical references suggest an update of the troubadour tradition in Cuban music.

This concert will take place this Friday, August 14 at 7 p.m. on Facebook and Instagram Live: @KoubekCenterMDC.
