Known as the Cuban diva, Albita graces audiences with her Cuban renditions of dance and soul. Her songs most often reflect her life experiences, as in her song "Que Manera de Quererte," and her album Dicen Que, translated as "They Say That." She performs worldwide, with ballets and orchestras, and sings annually at the Miami City Ballet.
Born Albita Rodriguez in Havana, Cuba, Albita grew up around musicians. Both her parents were popular musicians in Cuba singing punto and guajaro, a simple Cuban style of music. Her early childhood toys included bongos and claves.
Her career in the U.S. has produced success. She travels extensively, performing in such places as Australia, all Europe, Malaysia, Africa and of course all of Latin America. She has shared the stage with Celia Cruz, Willy Chirino, Phil Collins, Tony Bennett, Gilberto Gil, Juan Luis Guerra, Daniela Mercury, Miriam Makeba, Arturo Sandoval, Paquito D'Rivera and Melissa Etheridge.
