BMI Latin Spotlight: Silvana Estrada

Posted in News on January 23, 2023

Silvana Estrada is a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist from Mexico who grew up singing Mexican son jarocho and baroque choir music. An iconoclast who is schooled in jazz, Estrada dismisses trends in favor of a more personal, poetic style that gets straight to the heart of listeners. Her debut album, Marchita, was released in 2022 and received acclaim from publications like The Guardian, NPR Music, The Needle Drop, Billboard, and SPIN. The project explores falling in and out of love and was followed by her most recent EP, Abrazo, which was released on the heels of her two Latin GRAMMY nominations; she went on to win Best New Artist. Estrada has performed and recorded with Natalia Lafourcade, Andrew Bird, Devendra Banhart, and the LA Philharmonic, has participated in NPR’s Tiny Desk concert series, and released a pair of singles under the popular Spotify Singles banner.
