Short Synopsis

Singer/song writer Domingo Candelario was born in the heart of La Havana, Cuba, one of the best kept secrets in Cuban songwriting, now based in Auckland, New Zealand.  His compositions carry a message of love, life, loss, afro-Cuban religion, with intricate vocabulary, beautiful melodies, touches of jazz and bossa, and a Cuban feeling.

Domingo’s most recent album, Revolución, is a mix of funk, soul, Latin, Cuban rhythm and ballads.  He drew upon his experience arriving in London to a completely different culture and language, and was inspired to see his music transcend these barriers and reach the hearts of a more global audience.  It is in parts melancholy, along with a joyful desire to embrace his new home and be open to new influences.  The melody became as important or more important than the lyrics, to bring the poetry to life in a way that would touch people who didn't understand the language.

Domingo's live show is wonderfully multi-faceted and satisfyingly enchanting, using his Afro-Cuban theatre training to express the emotion in his music through his guitar and vocals.  His live performances of this complex album can appear to be light and flowing, but it is also full of hidden depths, with a great deal to interest those who already know Domingo, or who have already enjoyed the wonderful world of Cuban music, as well as those who are new to the genre.

Book Domingo and invite your audiences to relax and fall into a world which is full of vitality and presence.

Reviews Feature

"This is a great opportunity for him to share his culture and music with a country which hasn't had much exposure to a Latino artist of his stature. This complex album can appear to be light and flowing, but it is also full of hidden depths, with a great deal to interest those who already know Domingo, or who have already enjoyed the wonderful world of Cuban music, as well as those who are new to the genre. Put it on, relax, and fall into a world which is full of vitality and presence." – KEV ROWLAND for MLWZ.PL

"Highly recommended." – Latinos in London Radio, The Sound of Latin America & Iberia in the UK
