The New York-based singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist brings a lifetime in Latin American music to songs of love and protest from her newest album Querido Mundo (“Dear World”).

Raised in Atlanta by Puerto Rican parents, Cordero spent her childhood traveling between Atlanta and San Juan, absorbing American post-punk and the folkloric traditions of Puerto Rico in equal measure. A musician of boundless versatility, she’s performed as the touring drummer with Brazilian psychedelic legends Os Mutantes and space-surf greats Man or Astro-man?, co-founded the celebrated Mexican pop group Pistolera, and fronted the Latin alternative rock band Cordero before releasing her 2014 solo debut, Recordar (“Remember”). The album was a tribute to Latin American protest music and contained re-imagined versions of songs by “Nueva Cancion” luminaries Chavela Vargas, Violeta Parra, Victor Jara, and Atahualpa Yupanqui. In Querido Mundo, Cordero has brought her songwriting artistry to new plateaus, imagining a world changed for the better. As NPR Music noted, “The album's title, Querido Mundo, roughly translates to 'world that is loved.' By writing and singing about the kinds of things that challenge our moral compass, Ani Cordero also brings to light a spirit that inspires a fight against those challenges, to help us all make it a better 'world that is loved.'”
