From Puerto Rico, the musical sensation, Yoraué!
Yoraué was born on May 29, 2017 with the dream from Aurea Alicea, Johanna Centeno, Ramón Pérez and Héctor Ortiz to create a workshop to give a new musical and vocal spin to indigenous music from Puerto Rico. Together they gathered excellent musicians with the same love and passion form music, and in June same year they had their first live performance. To this date, Yoraué has performed in several towns around Puerto Rico and recorded 4 studio singles. In their repertoire they have original songs and also songs from other Puertorrican composers and genres like plena, salsa, and nueva trova as well as Christmas music.
