The Cuban cellist and composer creates a beautiful mix of classical cello and vocals, drawing on son Cubano, samba, bossa nova, tango, jazz and chanson.

Ana Carla Maza was born in Havana to a musical family – her father was Chilean pianist Carlos Maza and her mother Cuban guitarist Mirza Sierra.  For many years she was inspired by the musical traditions of her childhood, from Brazilian bossa nova to Cuban habanera incorporating Latin rhythms, pop tunes, jazz harmonies and classical techniques. 

I love the energy in her music - there is a boundless sense of Cuba in her music
