From Havana, Cuba, “street poetess” Telmary has emerged as a leader and trendsetter on the cutting edge of hip-hop and urban music in Cuba. As a rapper, Telmary uses her distinctive voice, at times deep and soulful, at times fast and aggressive to proclaim a positive, empowering message that contrasts with the genre's commercial norm.

Telmary started her musical career with Free Hole Negro in 1999 before joining Interactivo in 2002, a stellar collective of Cuban musicians whose singular groove layers rap, funk, jazz and soul atop traditional Afro-Cuban rhythms. She launched her solo career with her flagship album A Diario, which won the Cubadisco award for Best Hip Hop Album in 2007. After seven years in Toronto, Canada, Telmary returned to Havana where she formed her band Habana Sana. She continues to collaborate with a flurry of Cuban and international artists including Interactivo, Pedrito Martinez, Los Van Van, El Ruzzo de Orishas, Descemer Bueno and Doctor John.

Telmary has graced stages throughout Europe, Japan, North and South America. She performed at the Montreal Jazz Festival in 2008, participated in a tribute to Louis Armstrong with Dr. John at the Hollywood Bowl in 2013 and participated in the first Cuban music showcase at South by South West in 2016. Telmary & HABANASANA participated in New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in 2017 dedicated to Cuba and also in 2018 participated in the same Festival.

Most recently Telmary received nominations for Best Alternative Music Album at the Latin Grammys and Best World Music Album at the Juno Awards for her 3rd Album FUERZA ARARA (2018).
