Mexican indie star Silvana Estrada released her new EP, Abrazo, on the heels of two Latin Grammy nominations. She was awarded the 2022 Latin Grammy for Best New Artist at just 25 years old. Abrazo follows the breakthrough release of Silvana’s debut album Marchita. The album was spotlighted as a Best Album Of 2022 So Far in The Guardian, 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.
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.
“This Mexican artist’s debut is gorgeously understated, guided by her gauzy voice and rich, acoustic arrangements. Tapping into the vastness of Mexican music, she thrills in simplicity.”
