HAVANA, Cuba, Dec 8 (ACN) British singer Celeste gave a concert at the Marti Theater in Havana within the context of the British Culture Week in Cuba, scheduled until December 12.
Tuesday evening was filled with the magic of the young singer’s voice as she shyly sang her songs wrapped in a jazz-and-blues halo.
With temperance and modesty, and responding with “Gracias” (Thank you) to every ovation, Celeste amazed the audience with a performance backed by Cuban musicians.
She regaled the attendants with songs from her debut album Not Your Muse, including Ideal Women, Lately, Father's Son, Tonight Tonight, Love is Back, A Kiss and Strange.
The artist, whose full name is Celeste Epiphany Waite, began her artistic career in 2014, offering her voice to electronic producers such as Avicii, Tieks and Real Lies. She debuted with the single Daydreaming in 2016, and remained an independent artist until 2018, when she signed a contract with Polydor Records.
Celeste recorded the song Hear my voice for the soundtrack of the film The Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020), which earned her a nomination for Best Original Song at the Golden Globe and the Academy Awards.
Not your muse debuted at No. 1 on the UK Albums Chart and earned her nominations for Album of the Year, Best Female Solo Artist and Best New Artist at the 2021 Brit Awards, as well as the 2021 Mercury Prize.
