CL's Ms. Conception Recommends: Mexican vocalist Estrade is only 23 and is being hailed as the new voice of a movement of independent female artists who have characterized Latin Alternative music over the past decade, performing with an international roster.
A multi-instrumentalist, but most often pairs her vocals with the Venezuelan cuatro guitar. A small bodied, warm sounding guitar that seems to melt smoothly into her hands and glide just right with her diverse pipes. Raised by luthiers, on Mexican son jarocho, singing in the choir music, then later schooled in jazz, Estrada aims her sounds towards the heart of her listeners saying, “My music is made of who I am.” More than 600K monthly listeners are enjoying the discovery of Silvana Estrada on Spotify. — MC
