Silvana Estrada sings from down deep, telling her soulful coming-of-age stories in a voice that embraces the legacy of Latin American song and carries it into the 21st Century. Don’t miss an evening with this Latin GRAMMY-winning artist presented by Arizona Arts Live and TENWEST Festival on the Hotel Congress stage.
Called “one of Mexico’s greatest young talents and vocalists” by KCRW’s José Galvan, Silvana Estrada, 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. Silvana was also the first Spotify Mexico “EQUAL” artist and spotlighted in Apple Mexico’s “Up Next” program.
A multi-instrumentalist, Silvana Estrada 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.
