Festival Chispa: Latin Diva Series, Perla Batalla
March 11, 2017
Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Perla Batalla consistently earns critical acclaim for her extraordinary voice and culture-merging compositions. Formerly a Leonard Cohen back-up singer, the Los Angeles born vocalist launched her solo career with Cohen’s encouragement. Since then she’s recorded seven albums, been featured in films and television, and taken her unique sound on tour in some of the most prestigious venues around the world. The L.A. Times writes, “Batalla is comfortable in both English and Spanish, proud of her mestiza heritage, musically adventurous and always accompanied by impeccable performers…. above all, she is a born storyteller with a rambunctious sense of humor.” The concert, the 26th in the Center’s signature Latin Diva Series, is presented in partnership with Avokado Artists.
$12, $17, $22 with $2 discount for students, seniors, and NHCC members
