YAZMIN & BEAT ZERO  trio made their Cafe Carpe debut last year and are excited to return to their favorite cozy stage. Yazmin, who currently resides in New Orleans, LA, was born and raised in Northern Wisconsin by professional musician parents. At age 12 after attending a concert by a Cuban-jazz group, she instantly fell in love with Afro-Cuban jazz and dedicated herself to a life-long immersion in Cuban culture.

Her original music draws inspiration from these Caribbean influences as well as the likes of Joni Mitchell, Stevie Wonder and Queen, a melting pot of ingredients!

This summer she’s on tour across the Midwest with her trio Beat Zero. Their show features Yazmin’s powerful keyboard playing and soaring vocals as well as the talents of her world-class band: Grammy-nominated Álvaro Benavides from New York City on bass and multi-instrumentalist Andrew Gillespie from Minneapolis, MN on drums.

You will be swept away by a riveting fusion of Latin-Funk and Folk/Rock, weaving between both English and Spanish with ease and inviting listeners to cross between worlds with each note.  Along with these original songs, Yazmin & Beat Zero also interpret familiar classics with their own twist. You may be equally called to dance or to shed a tear before the night is over.
