For the last few years an angelical voice has been soothing the turbulent music scene in Havana. Formerly trained as a ballet dancer, concert pianist and choral singer; Diana Fuentes has chosen for the more popular Soul and R&B sounds.

Diana's first public appearance was in some way celestial, when in 1998 she was chosen to be the soloist for chorus Diminuto, who welcomed Pope Joan Paul II to Cuba.

Her professional career started in 2001, as a singer for “Síntesis, Cuba’s world renowned afro-rock band. Later she toured with X Alfonso, the acclaimed fusion music singer and composer.

In 2006 Diana was called by none other than Cuba’s alternative music hero Carlos Varela to become part of his band.

The H”, Humberto Manduley has stated about Diana Fuentes: "…When she sings, it is melody in a state of grace manipulating nuances including those sometimes anonymous ones of the coral singers. A great little perfect pearl of song shining among the paraphernalia of scenery, black rhythms of ancestral drums and electric whiplash of the heavy rock with all naked beauty of her instrument: THE VOICE. Diana sings as she is: beautiful"…”

Her talent and her tremendous work ethics helped her to be part of the production of several CDs of outstanding Cuban musicians and bands. Either as a soloist or as part of a chorus, she has worked in the recordings of over twenty of the most successful albums in Cuba for the last ten years for new and established artists such as: Javier Grass, Boni & Kelly, Free Hole Negro, Aceituna sin hueso, El Clan, Mate, Roklan, Kumar, Oggere, David Torrens, William Vivanco, Telmarys, among others.

Her voice is also part of the sound track of the award winning film “Miel para Ochún” directed by Humberto Solás, and the documentary “Life of Alberto Korda”, directed by Alejandro Strauss
from Mexico.

In 2007 Diana won the Adolfo Guzman’s GRAND PRIZE, Cuba’s most important singing event, for her interpretation of her own song “Decirte Cosas de Amor” (Telling You Words of Love).
Her first video clip, “Música de Fondo” (Background Music), with song written by her, got eight nominations and received two prizes as New Artist and the Best Female Video, on the occasion of the 7th edition of Lucas Prizes.

In 2008 she released her first Album, “Amargo pero Dulce” (EGREM), produced by two times Grammy nominee Descemer Bueno.

She has been touring and performing in Italy, Spain, Canada, Mexico Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Germany, Panama, Costa Rica, France, The Netherlands, the Dominican Republic, among others, with great success.

A definitive highlight of her career was to be part of “Paz Sin Fronteras” (Peace Without Borders) in Havana, a mega concert organized by Juanes, Miguel Bosé and Olga Tañon that gathered more than a million people and was broadcasted live to more than a hundred countries.

In May of 2010 while performing a big concert in Miami, Diana got the good news that she had won the Cubadisco 2010’s first prize in the pop category. This is the equivalent for the Grammys in Cuba and this was a year where many great artists and good albums were competing for this prestigious award.

Her duet with Carlos Varela “Luna de Vino Tinto”(Red Wine Moon) was the most- played single of 2010 at Radio Taino, a radio station in Havana with the largest audience for popular music.

As the determined and inquisitive artist she is, it was not surprise that in 2010 she accepted to be the leading actress for a major movie production in Ecuador directed by Francisco Ceballos. The film “Criaturas Abandonadas” (Abandoned Creatures) will be in theaters in early 2011.

Diana has already announced her second album and a new band to go on tour to continue enchanting audiences worldwide.
