A major international talent that’s on its way”
– THE TORONTO STAR
Through years of touring around the world, across Canada, and collaborating with Juno Award-winning performers, Eliana Cuevas has grown into an accomplished singer-songwriter and bandleader with unlimited colours in her compositional and lyrical palette. Among her honours are the National Jazz Award for Latin Jazz Artist of the Year, two Toronto Independent Music Awards for Best World Music Artist and an Independent Music Award for Best Latin Album. Eliana has released 5 albums of original Latin music to this date: Cohesión (2001), Ventura (2004) Vidas (2007), Espejo (2013), and most recently Golpes y Flores (2017). With her latest album Golpes y Flores, Eliana has created a beautiful musical love letter to her native land of Venezuela that integrates Afro-Venezuelan rhythms with Eliana’s very own Latin Jazz sound. The concert will feature original selections from Eliana’s most recent recording and she will be accompanied by a stellar line-up of musicians.
