Maya Azucena

MTV Made’s Award winning singer-activist Maya Azucena travels the world making music that matters. Self-described as sounding like “The Roots if fronted by a singer with 4-octaves”, Billboard and the Washington Post have heralded her mesmerizing performances, as well as the Village Voice that said, “armed with a powerfully compelling voice, Azucena just could be the most impressive of the current hip-hop/soul/r&b diva crop.”

Appreciated by many artists in the worlds of hip-hop, soul, jazz, dance and reggae, Maya has been part of countless collaborations, including a Grammy certificate winning feature on Stephen Marley’s CD “Mind Control,” and performances or recordings with artists as wide-ranging as Marcus Miller, Cormega, Mr. Cheeks, Roberta Flack, Immortal Technique, iNi Kamoze, Vernon Reid and Jonathan Peters. In 2010, Maya was heard on multiple tracks from the critically acclaimed album Pickin’ Up The Pieces by Fitz and The Tantrums.
