Join Us at Mingei for a Free Summer Concert
Luisa Corredor, a singer and teacher native to San Diego, and Ignacio Arango, a guitarist and bassist from Cuba, combine their talents to present traditional and popular music from Cuba and beyond.
Coming from a musical family, Luisa Corredor was exposed to the arts at a young age and has committed much of her life to the performing arts as a singer, actor, teacher, and producer. She is a force of nature on stage and in the classroom, touching audiences and inspiring students with her powerful, soulful voice. She has studied and performed musical traditions from cultures worldwide, including English folk songs from the Renaissance era, Flamenco, Middle Eastern, and Greek, as well as Cuban, Mexican, Brazilian, and other traditional music from South America.
Growing up in Havana, Ignacio Arango was surrounded by Afro-Cuban polyrhythms and the improvisational craft of the native rumberos and soneros. His deep musical roots shine through in his rhythmic, tasteful, and skillful playing. He was the bassist for “Show Tropicana” in Cuba for ten years, with whom he toured Italy, Mexico, and Monaco.
Since 2006, Ignacio has dedicated his attention to performing folklore-jazz with his family band, Los Hermanos Arango, with whom he continues to perform.
