ABOUT THIS CONCERT
A striking new voice hailing from the island of Margarita and the 2019 Latin GRAMMY winner for Best New Artist, Nella Rojas combines folk influences from her native Venezuela with the timeless coplas and flamenco of the Andalusian region in southern Spain. She returns to perform the soul-baring compositions from her new Sony Music album, Doce Margaritas.
Championed by GRAMMY-winning Latin pop star Alejandro Sans, the young singer is a graduate of Boston’s Berklee College of Music and has performed in Venezuela, Panamá, Mexico, US, Spain and the UK, sharing the stage with artists including Jennifer Lopez, Susana Baca, Monsieur Periné, and Luis Enrique. She appeared as an actor and singer in director Asghar Farhadí’s 2018 film Everybody Knows, starring Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz, which opened the Cannes Film Festival that year.
Of the vocalist, virtuoso violinist and Los Angeles Philharmonic conductor Gustavo Dudamel says, “Nella is a new voice and important artist from the Americas. I have been lucky to collaborate with her and deeply respect her distinctive and soulful artistry.”
With Doce Margaritas, the vocalist has made a masterful statement, full of evocative performances both intimate and expansive.
