Thursday, April 6 | 7:30 p.m.
Winter/Spring 2017 Concert Series
Guatemalan-born and Los Angeles–based artist Gaby Moreno has not allowed anyone to put her in a corner stylistically. Moreno, who was awarded “Best New Artist” at the 2013 Latin GRAMMY Awards, is nominated for a 2017 GRAMMY and has headlined a tour of rock clubs in the United States. She can never be accused of taking the safe path but instead blazing her own. Embracing the style and ethos of jazz, folk, and blues—with a healthy dose of romanticism—Moreno has found a visceral alchemy that is as moving in English as it is in Spanish, her native language.
“A tangy, bluesy voice with the feistiness of Édith Piaf”—New York Times
“Moreno’s breathtaking voice is passionate and stylistically malleable, as she glides back and forth easily between bossa nova and bluesy rock.”—NPR Music
“Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone and Ella Fitzgerald are hard acts to follow, but . . . Gaby Moreno takes her idols’ signature bluesiness and marries it with a little Latin flare.”—Latina MagazineBack to Concerts
