Lara Bello in concert in Chicago

The Spanish singer and composer from Granada will be playing flamenco, jazz and Mediterranean melodies across the U.S. this fall.

Bello was named Spanish World Music Artist of the Year in 2010 for her debut, Niña pez (2009). In 2012 her second recording, Primero amarillo después malva, earned raves in the United States and Latin America from People en español magazine to a “global hit” on the public radio show BBC The World. 2013 saw her third recording, Garnatiyya, and now Por el agua de Granada: Cancionero lorquiano. Her art draws on classical music and jazz, overtone singing, Buddhist chant, flamenco dance and song, and Arab dance.

A psychologist and writer, she has worked on a variety of crossculture collaborations for peace and cultural dialogue, conducting music projects with female prison inmates, children and music therapy initiatives around the world.

Lara Bello’s voice is a haunting and soothing reminder that the past is always present in the human spirit.

—Ed Morales, The New York Times.
