HDI Cultural Envoy Maya Azucena’s Legendary Woman, a One-Woman Show for Embassies Denmark and Norway (Virtually)

In celebration of Black History Month, Maya Azucena performed her Legendary Woman, a One-Woman Show. Legendary Woman is a musical memoir through the voices of Black American Divas. Using the songs of legends like Bessie Smith, Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, and Beyoncé, Azucena vocally and physically transforms from 1920’s to Present time, where she finds herself and her own songs. From Ragtime to HipHop, Maya Azucena performs chronologically decade by decade, authentically capturing each genre. The show gives a concert-taste of Black American history, taking the audience on a journey from 1920’s to 2020, through the eyes and songs of legendary Women.
