When Caridad Cruz immigrated to Canada in 2003 after a 10-year career singing in the hotels and night spots of her native Cuba, she brought with her what The Globe and Mail called a "warm ocean of a voice."
Since her nationally broadcasted Canadian debut, Caridad has toured the New York area and taken her mix of salsa, Latin jazz, and traditional Cuban songs to the Montreal Jazz Festival, Ottawa Jazz Festival, Bluesfest, National Capital Canada Day celebrations, and the National Arts Centre.
"Havana native Caridad Cruz packs a powerful punch," pronounced the Ottawa Citizen. "She's an entertainer, a crowd pleaser. With her powerful voice and no-holds-barred personality, she knows how to get people up dancing and singing."
