How To Book ALBITA For Your Event!

Albita may be available for your next special event!

  Albita - booking information

Albita (born Albita Rodriguez) finds inspiration for her songs in everything and anything, but notes that an important influence was changing countries: She has been in the United States since 1993. "When you begin a new life, you start accumulating information and new influences. You don't know exactly where it will lead you and what it will lead you to produce," Albita explains. She notes that in addition to music itself, Cubans have a unique way of speaking, using specific vocabulary and phrases. "Cuban is different from Spanish. This is part of our unique identity and allows us to express our view in our own sensibility and words."

  Albita - booking information  Her parents were well-known punto guajiro (acoustic Cuban country music) singers and she claims that her first living memory is seeing a guiro, clave and bongo (Cuban percussion instruments).

"'Habra Musica Guajira (There Will Be Guajira Music)' was the title track on my first Cuban release (in 1988, on the state-owned Egrem label) and remains very important in my battle to play authentic Cuban music. 'Son de Tahurete' is also special for me. This style of son goes back to the period of Cuba's fight for independence against Spain, and originated in Province Oriente in the middle of the mountains." (Son combines African and European elements, transforms them into a polyrhythmic indigenous musical art form, and is the basis of today's salsa.)

  Albita - booking information  "Hoy No Voy A Trabajar (Today I'm Not Going to Work)" is noteworthy for the playing of Cuban jazz great Arturo Sandoval on trumpet. Albita's group opened for Sandoval on her very first US tour, and the two expatriate musicians struck up a friendship. "I needed a person who could play this descarga ("jam" song style) very aggressively," Albita explains. "Arturo is the only one who has the rhythm of the Carnival Cubano, who could play with this flavor and technique." "Hoy No Voy A Trabajar" mixes conga (a standard Afro-Cuban rhythm) with descarga. About the lyrics, Albita jokes, "Could you imagine if my conga player decided he didn't want to work today? I'd be incapacitated."

Most of Albita's group played together in Cuba and Colombia, before moving to Miami. Julia Sierra is Albita's musical director, and wrote two songs on "Dicen Que..."; she is also one of the only female tres players in the world. Albita describes Julia as "a unique musician with a great capacity for understanding who captures where I want to go musically...I am proud to have her as my closest friend as well as my musical director."

Mercedes Abal is Albita's flautist. Pianist Vivianna Pintado and bassist Mandy Gonzalez are also long-time members who came to the US with Albita. Newcomers to the group include trumpeter Eduardo Leal, trombonist Jorge Dobal, and percussionists Fernando Pina and Ramon Rodriguez. All of the musicians are Cuban, and Albita explains that when she met them, she was impressed by them both musically and by what kind of people they are.

Albita, who credits her parents as her greatest musical influence, began playing when she was 15 and first learned punto guajiro. By the time she was 19, she was the youngest performer on Cuba's musical television showcase "Palmas y Canas," which is akin in spirit to the United States' "Hee-Haw."

Albita thrived in Cuba, playing Havana's top tourist hotels and nightclubs including the famed Tropicana. Her first album, "Habra Musica Guajira," was released in 1988. In 1991 she was offered a major recording contract in Colombia, for which the Cuban government allowed her to live abroad, but continued to take a huge percentage of her earnings. The singer recorded two more albums, which sold widely throughout Latin America.

In April 1993, at the height of their pre-US career, Albita y Su Grupo decided to break away. They set up a visit to a recording studio in Mexico, went to the US border, and casually walked over the bridge into El Paso, thus defecting to the United States.

Albita settled in Miami, where her performances in a tiny Cuban restaurant called Centro Vasco soon were attracting enthusiastic fans like Madonna (who changed the date of her birthday party in order to be able to have Albita perform at the bash), Paloma Picasso, Angelica Huston, Marisa Tomei, Rosie O'Donnell, Cindy Crawford and Gianni Versace.

Among those fans were Emilio and Gloria Estefan, whose Epic-distributed Crescent Moon label released Albita's US debut album, "No Se Parece a Nada (Unlike Anything Else)," in June 1995. The singer and her group commenced touring the world, playing sold-out shows in the United States, Spain, Panama, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela and Puerto Rico. Among the high points were a performance at the North Sea Jazz Festival in Holland, a show in Spain with the Pyrenees Mountains as a backdrop, and festival appearances with Gilberto Gil and Oscar d'Leon.

As to her much commented-upon androgynous image of tailored suits and slicked-back hair, Albita remarks that "by the second song of my performances, people aren't focusing on what I look like, but are listening to the music." She adds: "I am definitely not the typical Latin woman. I'm blond and I'm thin and that's not a typical Latin look. I like to wear comfortable clothes when I perform." She recognizes that "people need to find a reference point to express their impressions of me."

Albita performed the Cuban classic "Guantanamera" as President Clinton and first lady Hillary danced during their reelection inauguration in Washington.

The power of Albita's music was the reference point for the press, which had nothing but the highest praise for "No Se Parece a Nada" and the singer's incendiary live shows. "Her music is a complete package of vocal skill, poetic beauty and outstanding playing by a group of young Cuban musicians," The Los Angeles Times wrote. New York Magazine added: "This 33-year-old is hardly all flash...the punto guajira songs on 'No Se Parece a Nada' smoothly blend rock, jazz, and more traditional folk elements into a steamy conga-driven salsa that explodes on impact." Paper described the singer as "part Beny More, part Marlene Dietrich," and noted that "from her first song, Albita shatters the room with the power of her rich, earthy voice."

Hits include: "Mis Tacones",
"Valga el Brillo de Tus Ojos",
"No Ser Parece Nada".

Top songs include:

  • Habra Musica Guajira
  • Fiesta Pa'Los Rumberos
  • Bolero Para Nostalgiar

(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire ALBITA for an event?)
(i.e., what is ALBITA booking fee to perform at an event?)

Official booking fees for ALBITA, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at any time without prior notice.

Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist's calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist's concerts, the current demand for the artist's music, market activity, etc.

As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist's price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when the artist becomes less popular.

Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at any time. Generally, the artist's manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
