Bobi is a treasure and her new CD Patakin a delight! A native of Cuba, she brings to her art a lifetime of profound immersion in Afro-Cuban traditions such as the son, rumba, bolero and Yoruba-based culture. She is unique voice that has earned the respect of her peers and the hearts of her loyal fans in the San Francsico Bay Area, where she has made her home for the last 30 years.

In front of a sold-out crowd at Berkeley's La Peña, Bobi Céspedes performed songs from her new CD Patakin with an all-star cast of Bay Area's finest. The stage was adorned with the many flowers gifted to her for the event. Fellow musician John Santos best expresses our sentiments about Bobi: "Bobi is a treasure! A native of Cuba, she brings to her art a lifetime of profound immersion in Afro-Cuban traditions such as the son, rumba, bolero and Yoruba-based culture. She is unique voice that has earned the respect of her peers and the hearts of her loyal fans in the San Francsico Bay Area, where she has made her home for the last 30 years".

To those attending, the uplifting concert asserted the notion that folkloric music can be very sophisticated. Her classic interpretations of both her original and known ballads contrasted nicely with the upbeat salsa and son numbers. "Maíz No Crece" and "Drume Negrita" were especially moving. Everyone in the band provided vocal support and the harmonies were especially sweet with Lichi Fuentes and Eric Rangel on board. Highlights included simultaneous piano and trumpet playing by Marco Díaz and the tight rhythms by bassist Saul Sierra, conguero Sany Pérez and Julio Péerez on timbales and bongó. Rounding out the ensemble were José Roberto Hernández on guitar and a special appearance by Roberto Razón on tres.
