Dafnis Prieto featuring Luciana Souza 

Berklee Performance Center

Dafnis Prieto—a Grammy Award-winning Cuban-born drummer, composer, bandleader, and 2011 MacArthur “Genius” Fellow—joins forces with Brazilian vocalist Luciana Souza—also a Grammy winner, a sensitive and thoughtful interpreter, and a sought-out partner for musicians of all kinds—to engage listeners through words and music. 

Their artistic partnership began with a 2022 collaboration on Prieto’s album Cantar, his first outing as a lyricist. The album and this concert showcase Souza’s soulful and expressive vocals and her interpretive prowess in Spanish, English, and Portuguese songs.  

“[Prieto's music is] a marvel of acrobatic musicianship, with Souza’s voice hopping and gliding across tricky but joyful melodies, a glorious match of percussive angularity and tuneful allure. ”

The New York Times

“[Luciana Souza’s] voice traces a landscape of emotion that knows no boundaries.”
