A musical universe born with the need to poeticize and understand how words become actions. In this special performance, rising star of the international folk music scene, Silvana Estrada, summons a new passage for her critically acclaimed debut album, Marchita, by exposing the songs using the movement of the body and a vocal quartet in an intimate ritual with melodies that burst from tradition, loss, and love. After an international tour across the globe, you won’t want to miss this intimate performance.
*The performance on January 14 will be followed by an artist conversation

Called “one of Mexico’s greatest young talents and vocalists” by KCRW’s José Galvan, Silvana Estrada (Composer and Performer), who is 23 years old, is the new voice of a movement of independent female artists who have characterized Latin Alternative music over the past decade. She has also been recognized internationally, performing and recording with artists including Uruguayan singer/songwriter Jorge Drexler, Chile’s Mon Laferte, Catalan singer Silvia Pérez Cruz and Spanish group Love of Lesbian, as well as Natalia LaFourcade and other well-known Mexican artists. A multi-instrumentalist, Silvana most often plays the Venezuelan cuatro guitar, whose small body and warm sound suits her hands and syncs with the rolling variations of her vocals. Raised singing Mexican son jarocho and baroque choir music, and schooled in jazz, she is an iconoclast who dismisses musical trends for a personal, poetic style that goes straight to the heart of listeners.
