A New York Evening With Silvana Estrada

The GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to present an intimate conversation and performance with this year’s Latin GRAMMY winner for “Best New Artist,” Silvana Estrada, at The Greene Space at WNYC and WQXR in New York City­­­. The conversation will include a discussion about her career, recent Latin GRAMMY win, debut album Marchita and EP Abrazo, as well as her musical influences, background, creative process, and more. Following the conversation, Silvana Estrada will perform.

Silvana Estrada is one of many artists to be featured in the GRAMMY Museum’s new New York City program series, which includes bringing a slate of the GRAMMY Museum’s renowned GRAMMY In The Schools Education Programs and Public Programs to the East Coast in partnership with the City of New York Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment. “A New York Evening With…” is presented by City National Bank.

Her program will follow the world premiere of her staged production of Marchita at the Prototype Festival.  

ABOUT SILVANA ESTRADA:

Mexican indie star Silvana Estrada won the Latin GRAMMY for “Best New Artist” at this year’s Latin GRAMMY Awards. She also performed on the awards show telecast with Carlos Vives and Camilo.

Silvana’s win caps a breakout year which has included the release of her debut album Marchita, recent EP Abrazo and sold out shows across the U.S. 

Marchita was spotlighted as a “Best Album Of 2022 So Far” in The Guardian, Rolling Stone, NPR Music, The Needle Drop, Billboard and SPIN. “Marchita” came to Silvana after falling in love for the first time, and a breakup that ultimately led her to embrace herself and fiercely defend her own unique voice. Silvana talks about the withering of what was, but finally, the sprouting of something new.

Silvana has performed and recorded with artists including Natalia Lafourcade, who like Silvana, grew up outside Veracruz as well as Andrew Bird, Devendra Banhart and the LA Philharmonic

A multi-instrumentalist, Silvana 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. “My music is made of who I am,” she says. 

Silvana’s childhood home was the setting for her NPR “Tiny Desk (Home) Concert.” She grew up in a house where not only music, but instruments, were made. Both of Silvana’s parents are luthiers, and a path was worn to their home in Coatepec, a mountain town in Veracruz, by the musicians who arrived daily to commission a new violin or cello, or have their instruments repaired.

The recent EP Abrazo is a combination of songs originally recorded during the ‘Marchita‘ album sessions as well as a couple recently recorded tracks. Silvana explains that the song “Brindo” was born out of joy and gratitude. She says, “I needed a song that encompasses the feeling that floods me every time I think about my path and my work. The idea of creating human connections through music.”

The recent single “Aquí” is accompanied by a video directed by Silvana along with Andrea Farley Shimota and Assaf Salhov. “The idea for this video was born in February, after my first show in Brooklyn,” Silvana explains. “My friends Andy and Assaf invited me to their beautiful home and I sang ‘Aquí’ for them on the guitar. I don’t remember how it all started because my eyes were closed, but at the end of the song when I opened them, Andy and Assaf were dancing together in the room. It was like watching them play, marveling at their own space. It was so beautiful that a couple of months later I went back to NY to record this video that we made with all our love trying to recreate that special moment.
