Introducing YA, a dynamic duo formed by Abel Marcel and Yussif Barakat, embodying the spirit of 'now' and the pause for 'fresh sounds' in the realm of music. The name YA captures the essence of immediacy and a moment of waiting, a call for listeners to experience the innovative and contemporary interpretations of traditional Latin American music. Abel Marcel, with his roots deeply entrenched in Cuban musical traditions, and Yussif Barakat, a maestro of the double bass and violone, unite to forge a sound that is at once timeless and groundbreaking. YA stands as a beacon of musical innovation, inviting audiences around the world to pause, listen, and immerse themselves in the nu sounds of Latin American tradition, reimagined for the modern era.
