Maja was five years old when her black Cuban family emigrated from the Caribbean to London, leaving her with one complete memory: a woman singing - in a voice both eerie and enthralling - at their farewell party.
Now, almost twenty years later, Maja herself is a singer, pregnant and haunted by what she calls 'her Cuba'.
