Aymber

Sunday, Oct 29, 2017 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM - English

Just some girl with a guitar & story – is how emerging artist Ft Lauderdale indie pop singer/songwriter Aymber describes herself. She taught herself how to play and wrote her first song the day she brought her guitar home. Being the shy girl that she was, Aymber wasn’t ready to sing in public yet, so she bought a webcam, made a YouTube account and learned to play some of her favorite songs. Although she’d been singing, since before she could talk according to her mother, she didn’t think anyone would listen. The more videos she put up the more subscribers and views she began to get and the more she started thinking to herself that she could actually do this.

Two months after posting her first YouTube video (with a little push from her family and friends) she decided to go to a local open mic, a tiny brewery in Davie, FL. In addition to pursuing her solo career, Aymber is also a backup singer in a Country-Rock band (The Ciara Rae Band) where she has had the opportunity to open for and meet many amazing country artists like Love & Theft and Charlie Worsham. She has also gotten to play at some great venues such as; The West Palm Beach Amphitheater, The Hard Rock in Hollywood, FL, Cowboys Saloon, Round-up, and many more.

Ileana “iLe” Cabra, a/k/a PG-13, the fierce young songstress of Puerto Rico’s world-renown alternative/hip-hop/rock band Calle 13, joined the band when she was only 16. Now a 2017 Grammy award winner, ILE makes her solo Florida debut November 2, after levitating across stages with her brother René (Residente) in Calle 13 for more than a decade.

Her sound is all her own: iLe’s eclectic tastes and ability to combine an older, more romantic point of view with the darkness of the new millennium. She draws as much from the work of her brothers and the extended Calle 13 family, as from an ancestry farther back, classic son and boleros, boogaloo and mambo.
