info 

Okan is violinist Elizabeth Rodriguez and percussionist Magdelys Savigne. Both graduates of Cuba's rigorous musical university training, they arrived in Toronto in 2013 and 2014 as members of Maqueque, Jane Bunnett's JUNO-winning women-only Cuban jazz group. They left Maqueque in 2017 to concentrate on OKAN. Pianist Miguel de Armas founded the legendary Cuban orchestra NG La Banda, and has performed and recorded for decades in Cuba and abroad, including with groups like Chucho Valdes e Irakere, Los Van Van, Pablo Milanés, and Compay Segundo. He arrived in Canada in 2012, and quickly established himself in Ottawa's and Canada's jazz scene. Toronto-based bassist Roberto Riveron was a founding member of the legendary Cuban group Klimax. He moved to Canada in 2007. Drummer Frank Martinez is also from Cuba – in fact, he was a university classmate of Rodriguez and Savigne – and now lives in Ottawa.
