BEST LOCAL LATIN SINGER - 2005
BEST LOCAL LATIN SINGER Aymee Nuviola This fair city has a well-deserved reputation for welcoming émigrés with open arms and launching them into the world brighter and bigger than ever. Aymee Nuviola, who left Cuba and arrived here via Costa Rica last year, seems destined to follow that path, if the dozens of fans who attend her weekend sessions (Thursdays through Saturdays) at the Doral café Havana Dreams are any indication. Her smooth, sensuous voice drives rhythms that range from traditional to timba, and her powerful marathon performances make her a must-see for Latin enthusiasts. Everyone is advised to check her out, if only to hear the woman who popularized the standard "Que Manera de Quererte."
