MTV Made’s Award winning singer-activist Maya Azucena travels the world making music that matters. Self-described as sounding like “The Roots if fronted by a singer with 4-octaves”, Billboard and the Washington Post have heralded her mesmerizing performances, as well as the Village Voice that said, “armed with a powerfully compelling voice, Azucena just could be the most impressive of the current hip-hop/soul/r&b diva crop.” Appreciated by many artists in the worlds of hip-hop, soul, jazz, dance and reggae, Maya has been part of countless collaborations, including a Grammy certificate winning feature on Stephen Marley’s CD “Mind Control,” and performances or recordings with artists as wide-ranging as Marcus Miller, Cormega, Mr. Cheeks, Roberta Flack, Immortal Technique, iNi Kamoze, Vernon Reid and Jonathan Peters. In 2010, Maya was heard on multiple tracks from the critically acclaimed album Pickin’ Up The Pieces by Fitz and The Tantrums. Her music has been featured on HBO’s The Wire and her likeness on NBC’s 30 Rock. Maya’s latest CD, CRY LOVE has been listed on several “Best of” 2011 lists including #1 on Pop Matters, and Amazon’s “Top Albums You May Have Missed”. At the 2010 U.N. Summit, Ms. Azucena was selected by the office of Secretary General Ban Ki Moon to be the exclusive performer at his Every Woman, Every Child event. Maya is also co-founder (along with Emmy-winning director Lisa Russell) of the multi-media website, MDGFive.com, that uses all mediums of Art to raise awareness for better maternal health. In addition to touring with her band and collaborating with many living legends in the music world, Maya mentors teenagers and is invited as a motivational speaker on the subjects of artist entrepreneurism and achieving ones dreams. Among other acknowledgements, Maya’s been awarded a Proclamation from Congress for co-producing Hope Night, a concert for domestic-abuse awareness; and the prestigious “Top 40 Under 40″ Award from The Network Journal for her business acumen, community work and work abroad. On JANUARY 14TH Maya Azucena launches her latest effort, “Dance Revolution”, a song commissioned by the One Billion Rising campaign.
