Yazmin & Beat Zero

Yazmin, who currently resides in New Orleans, LA, was born and raised in Washburn, WI. Both of her parents were original members of the Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua and she grew up surrounded by music, following in their footsteps by the time she could walk. At age 12 after attending a concert by a Cuban-jazz group, she instantly fell in love with Afro-Cuban jazz and dedicated herself to a life-long immersion in Cuban culture. Her original music draws inspiration from these Caribbean influences as well as the likes of Joni Mitchell, Stevie Wonder and Queen, a melting pot of ingredients! This summer she's on tour across the Midwest with her trio Beat Zero. Their show features Yazmin’s powerful keyboard playing and soaring vocals as well as the talents of her world-class band: Grammy-nominated Álvaro Benavides from New York City on bass and multi-instrumentalist Andrew Gillespie from Minneapolis, MN on drums. You will be swept away by a riveting fusion of Latin-Funk and Folk/Rock, weaving between both English and Spanish with ease and inviting listeners to cross between worlds with each note.  Along with these original songs, Yazmin & Beat Zero also interpret familiar classics with their own twist. You may be equally called to dance or to shed a tear before the night is over.

" …She was incredible. I sat out on the porch, up the hill a little bit, and I was transported to another place. How brilliant is she? She is absolutely fantastic. What a voice, what a keyboard player, just absolutely extraordinary!” -Nanci Griffith (Singer-Songwriter)
