Bobi Céspedes

April 2 @ 8:00 PM PDT

Bobi Céspedes

Gladys “Bobi” Céspedes has been at the forefront of representing Cuban music in the Bay Area and internationally for over 40 years. Bobi’s music integrates Cuban folkloric and modern elements in an authentic and distinctive sound. Her resonant voice and dynamic stage presence lead audiences on a journey from Yoruba incantations to the Cuban son. She can belt out a rumba or move you to tears through a heart-wrenching rendition of a classic bolero. Always present is her chamber—that vibrant Cuban soul–creative and resilient.

Bobi performed at the festival inaugurating the Smithsonian’s Museum of African American History and Culture in 2016, sharing the bill with such illustrious world music divas as Angélique Kidjo and Meshell Ndegeocello. She sold out shows in tribute to Celia Cruz at the SF Jazz Festival were so popular she was asked to repeat the tribute two years later in another memorable sold-out performance.
