¡¡¡CD Released!!!

After years of planning and months of hard work, Dayren's debut album Belleza is ready!

A violinist who tends towards relative introversion and a pianist who tends the other way. Put them together and something magical happens within the tensions they engender." -Latin Jazz Net

Music Director

After being a regular member of the show's band for several years, Dayren recently assumed the role of music director and arranger for Noches Con Platanito. It's a lot more responsibility but also a great chance to apply her arranging skills in a fun context.
