Join singer-songwriter Edna Vazquez and Alejandro Rivas (one half of Peruvian duo Alejandro y Maria Laura) for an intimate evening of original music.
This will be the only Bay Area stop on their Fall Tour together, which includes a performance at WXPN World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.
Edna Vazquez is a Portland-based Latin American singer-songwriter who performs original compositions that pay homage to her international influences with a passion that comes through in every note of her music. She lifts the audience’s spirits during her cathartic live performances with a vocal range that allows her to transition seamlessly between folk, rock, pop and Mariachi, all while exploring jazz stylings. Edna’s songs are deeply rooted in universal human emotion and she has traveled far and wide spreading her message of light, love and cultural healing.
Born in the Mexican state of Colima but raised in Jalisco, Edna spent half of her life immersed in the culture and music of Mexico and Latin America, moving to the United States as a teenager. Her passion for music and performance was born from these bicultural roots and has led her on a path of self-discovery through song that has brought her success at each turn in the road. Whether sharing the stage with her musical influences or winning the first prize on Sabado Gigante with her rendition of Cucurrucucú Paloma, Edna’s spirit and powerful vocal performance have been the cornerstone of her career.
