Our next Latin Roots Live! event is being held on Thursday, November 17, 2016 at World Cafe Live Upstairs. RSVP your free tickets now! This Latin Roots Live! concert will feature two exciting emerging artists, Edna Vazquez and Peruvian singer/songwriter duo Alejandro y Maria Laura.
Edna Vazquez is a Portland-based Latin American singer-songwriter who performs original compositions that pay homage to her international influences with a passion that comes through in every note of her music. She lifts the audience’s spirits during her cathartic live performances with a vocal range that allows her to transition seamlessly between folk, rock, pop and Mariachi, all while exploring jazz stylings. Her songs are deeply rooted in universal human emotion and she has traveled far and wide spreading her message of light, love and cultural healing.
After years of studying audio & visual arts together by day, to improvising pop song covers in various bars & restaurants by night, Peruvian singer/songwriter duo Alejandro Y Maria Laura sings their hearts out to thousands of captive ears tuned into their unique take on the Spanish Pop genre. Their music has been featured in various Latin American television programs, including HBO Brazil’s popular television series, “Encuentros en Brasil”. Since then, they’ve earned awards back to back: “Artist of the Year” (Premios Luces, Brazil 2014), “Best Fusion Album” & “Best Group of the Year” (GeneraRock, 2015). Alejandro y Maria Laura continue to charm the hearts of their fans all over South America, and the world.
