Danay Suárez, was born in Havana, Cuba in 1984. Where as her application to Cuba’s musical conservatory was denied, she never gave up on her dream. Danay joined “Opera de la Calle” in 2003 which allowed her to train and furter expand her sound spectrum. She later went on to become one of the principal figures in Cuba’s underground Rap movement. Danay’s ability to adapt has allowed her to thrive in different genres such as Jazz, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Dub-Step and traditional Cuban music. Her collaborations as a Havana Cultura solo artist took her to international stages and between 2009 – 2012 participated in shows in Paris, Manchester, London, Amsterdam, Turkey and Leeds. In 2013 she headlined Colombia’s famed festival “Hip-Hop al Parque” where she sang before an audience of 120,000 fans.
