ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Powerful vocals, incredible musicianship and potent lyrical content come together as the composing duo explore love, painful breakups, longing for home and immigration.

Both Elizabeth and Magdelys are JUNO winners and Grammy nominees for their contributions to Jane Bunnett & Maqueque’s recording projects and JUNO-nominated for their work with Battle of Santiago.

Laberinto, OKAN’s first recording features five original compositions produced by Grammy-winning bassist Roberto Riveron and released on Toronto’s Lulaworld Records label. Special guests include Bill King, Jeremy Ledbetter, Reimundo Sosa, Alexis Baro and Pablosky Rosales.

Rodriguez’s captivating voice, evocative phrasing and virtuosic violin playing are supported by Savigne’s vocal harmonies. The sweetness of this vocal union has even greater impact when set against the complex and tradition-rich rhythms contributed by Savigne on congas, cajon and batá, Anthony Szczachor on drums and Roberto Riveron on electric bass.
