Aymée Nuviola, like the music from her native island of Cuba, embodies that magical blend of musical genres. Born in Havana, Cuba, into a family of musicians, some of her earliest memories are at the piano, working through melodies between lessons. Later, as she
became a classically trained pianist and composer at the Manuel Samuell Conservatory, Cuba’s top music academy, she recalls her fascination with all kinds of music, from Debussy to Bossa Nova. Her sound is now highly influenced by the classical, American Jazz, Pop, Bossa Nova, Cuban Son, Bolero and Fílin genres.
