Events : Amador Sisters LIVE at University of Cincinnati (Thursday, April 16)
Posted by admin on 2015/4/10 0:20:00 (370 reads)

Please join us for the first performance of The Amador Sisters at University of Cincinnati !

The Amador Sisters, originally from Cuba, are two talented musicians educated in top music schools in Cuba: Mai Martinez is a graduate of “Jose White” Music Conservatory, and Dali Amador graduated from Amadeo Roldan Music Conservatory and Instituto Superior de Arte. 

Growing up, they loved to play together at home, and creating music was the perfect playground for both of them. After graduation, they followed separate music careers performing all over the world with different Cuban bands, incl. Dubai, Thailand, Japan, and many countries in Latin America. In 2008 they were finally able to reunite for a concert in Tokyo, Japan, accomplishing their dream of performing together side by side as professional musicians. 

In 2013 Mai moved to Cincinnati to join her brother, Cervilio Amador, the principal dancer of Cincinnati Ballet, followed by Dali in 2014, and now they can perform again together as The Amador Sisters, sharing their love for Latin music!
