Zenaida Romeu, founder of the Camerata Romeu and one of the world’s few female conductors, was born into a family of Cuban performers and composers spanning several generations. She created her orchestra in 1992, and it has blossomed into an accomplished group of all-female instrumentalists, playing a variety of music ranging from Mozart to traditional Cuban, all with their own distinct and youthful flavor. The musical focus of the orchestra is playing European style classical music while drawing on the Spanish, African and Latin American Indian rhythms that are popular throughout the island of Cuba.

They have played all over Cuba, both in the large cities like Havana and small country towns. They have also been privileged to receive a tremendously warm response from enthralled audiences while on tour in the United States, Latin America and Europe.  Despite the everyday hardships of life in Cuba, scarcity of musical supplies and quality instruments, injuries and insecurities, this group of women, who are also busy housewives, mothers and students, have created an original sound that displays their tremendous musical gifts for the world to see. They have two highly acclaimed CD’s, Cuba Mia and La Bella Cubana, and are currently in the studio recording their third album.
