La Cassandra brings a sound that traces back to her Caribbean roots; telling her story through compelling melodies and expressive performances.
The Dominican-American singer and songwriter from New York City grew up listening to boleros, bachatas and merengue's gravitating to a variety of artists that have influenced her music such as Juan Gabriel, Gloria Estefan, Juan Luis Guerra, Sade and Las Chicas del Can. These influences drove her affinity to fuse the old and timeless with the new, reinterpreting tropical folklore with a modern twist. Cassandra proposes a refreshing new take on the current Latin market.
The artistic evolution of Cassandra has resulted in significant traction in her career from opening at Yankee Stadium to performing at the Havana Jazz Festival, to name a few.
At the moment Cassandra is working on the release of her current project and debut album. She started writing the album in late 2018 and live recorded with over 13 musicians during the summer of 2019 in Havana, Cuba at the EGREM studios. Comprised of 10 songs, this record is a dynamic Latin pop album where the core genres are Tropical and Bolero. The album is best described as dramatic, passionate, romantic and unexpected.
Cassandra takes a vow to womanhood and the celebration of life; paying great respect and tribute to her native roots, Dominican Republic.
