Havana Cultura introduces new artist Danay 

The screenshots look the same but trust me, these are two different videos

I went to the Toronto edition of Havana Club's Havana Cultura Cuban music & art festival headlining show featuring Gilles Peterson and Robert Fonseca. Bottom line, the show was ridiuclous. Fonseca is a beast on the keyboards - like Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles and Jerry Lee Lewis combined. Yeah I said it! Dude is that incredible.

Also, I might have got caught up in the moment but I think this chica, Danay could be a star. She looks amazing, has charisma coming out of her pores and can can sing and rap. I'm not saying she's the next (or Latin) Lauryn Hill but I think with the right producers and songs, she could really do something. The videos above don't even really do her justice based on what I saw last night but watch them and tell me if I'm onto somehting here or just smoking that good stuff wrapped in cohiba blunts!
