Alma Records announces signing of Brenda Navarrete
Toronto, Canada, April 24, 2017 – Toronto‐based “music first” label Alma Records, in its 25th
year of operation, is very pleased to announce the signing of Brenda Navarrete to an exclusive
multi‐release recording deal, bringing the 26‐year old Cuban artist’s fresh and unique
interpretation of contemporary World and Jazz music to the international stage. Recording of
the multi‐talented singer, percussionist, composer and arranger’s debut CD will begin in May,
with plans to complete recording at Toronto’s Phase One Studios in time for a September 2017
Brenda Navarrete is one of Cuba’s great young talents and a graduate of Cuba’s prestigious
Amadeo Roldán conservatory. She has made her mark working alongside an array of Cuba’s
music elite, while her solo career has included television and radio broadcasts of live
performances, and tours in North America. With a solid foundation of Latin Jazz and Afro‐Cuban
influences, Brenda has spread her wings into contemporary World Music, featuring proud
Cuban roots with jazz undertones.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Brenda Navarrete to our label and we look forward to great things
in the months and years ahead,” says Peter Cardinali, President of Alma Records. “Brenda is a
special talent, with music in her soul, and we’re eager to create memorable recordings that will
convey that to the world.”
The signing with Alma Records follows a management agreement between Brenda Navarrete
and Wild West Artist Management, headed by Canadian music industry veteran, Jim West. The
management deal will help support the release of Brenda’s CD, with plans to begin touring
internationally in 2018.
“Brenda is a terrific addition to our rosterof talented artists and we are pleased to be
embarking on this journey with her,” says Jim West. “We look forward to a productive and
successful relationship that will grow for many years to come.”
In 2010, Brenda Navarrete won a national competition during Cuba’s prestigious Fiesta del
Tambor, winning first prize in the category of Bata drums, as well as for best interpretation by a
female artist. Her percussion talents were first rewarded with an endorsement contract from
Canadian company Sabian, and she subsequently signed an artist endorsement deal with the
Gon Bops percussion company in March 2016.
