Azucar con AcheAzúcar Con Aché – which the band translates as “Sweetness with Powerful Blessings” – is a multicultural mix of dynamic women playing high-energy Latin jazz and spicy salsa. The band has performed at such events as the Multicultural Community Center’s Night of Cultural Resistance, the National Center for Lesbian Rights’ Annual Gala Celebration, the San Francisco Dyke March, the UC Berkeley Empowering Women of Color Conference, and the Fabulosa Fest. Drawing on a wealth of musical traditions from Africa to California, from Puerto Rico, Cuba, and Brazil to New York City, the band plays creatively arranged standards and tasty originals, singing in Spanish, English, and Portuguese.
 
With Remy Rodriguez on piano, María Cora on lead vocals, Maria Cetto on lead vocals and cuatro, Robin Nzingah Smith on saxophone, Sue “Suki” Kaye and Judy Graboyes on percussion, and Mwamba Blakwomyn on bass, the band will lift your spirits and get you moving to the beat. Feel the power of sweetness and the sweetness of power with Azúcar Con Aché at the Freight!
