Born in Venezuela, Nella has recently skyrocketed to international renown, fueled by her powerhouse voice and undeniable presence.
Winner of the 2019 Latin Grammy Award for Best New Artist, Nella’s full-length debut Voy received critical acclaim and yielded the hit “Me Llaman Nella” [see video below} as well as the title track, which was named the 14th best song of 2019 (in any genre) by The New York Times.
Merging the folklore roots of Venezuela, modern production, and Andalusian inspirations, Nella’s music resounds in every corner of the globe.
She has packed venues throughout the United States, Venezuela, Mexico, Spain, and the UK, and she has accompanied Alejandro Sanz, Jennifer López, Carlos Vives, Luis Enrique, and others as a soloist.
She also performed songs in the 2018 film Everybody Knows, starring Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz.

The Montalvo Experience reflects the intersection of three unique assets – people, place and programs – to nourish creativity, connection and sense of belonging.
People: We believe in the power of community. People of all kinds gather at Montalvo for many reasons. We provide places and programs that enable and support people to connect, explore, collaborate, and share creative experiences, often to surprising results.
Place: Our 175-acre property encompasses a historic Villa, eleven artist residences, indoor and outdoor performance and exhibition venues, lush gardens, and hiking trails that wind through redwood forests to stunning vistas. Our work, programs, and culture embrace and leverage our home, creating harmony and intimacy with the natural beauty and peacefulness that surrounds us. Montalvo is an oasis of arts and nature in the heart of bustling Silicon Valley.
Programs: We emphasize programs that nourish creativity, nurture a sense of belonging, and create connections among people. Our hallmark is excellence in all experiences. For professional artists, we create an unparalleled environment that supports the creation of new works. We offer inclusive experiential learning opportunities, chances to witness creativity in progress, rich dialogues that explore relevant contemporary topics, and performing and visual arts events and festivals that reflect the diversity and beauty of our multi-cultural region.
Montalvo seeks to be an organization people return to again and again to create, discover, connect, and belong.
