Biography

A Berklee College of Music graduate -where she shone as a soloist in her own right-, her music is a meeting place for her country’s folklore roots, the influence of her contemporaries, and the music of the Andalusian region.  Above all, she is a handful of songs that she sings with her bare soul. 

Nella, who has already garnered the support of Latin pop star Alejandro Sanz, has performed with a variety of artists such as Jennifer Lopez, Carlos Vives, Luis Enrique, and Susana Baca.   More recently, Nella was asked to join the stellar cast of Oscar Award winner Asghar Farhadi’s new movie, Everybody Knows, featuring Javier Bardem, Ricardo Darín and Penélope Cruz, where she sings songs written by composer & producer, Javier Limón, exclusively for the screenplay. The movie opened the 2018 Cannes Film Festival.  

With sold out shows in NYC, Miami, London, Caracas, and her hometown of Margarita, Venezuela,  Nella sets out on her first US tour in 2019, including songs featured in Farhadi’s movie, as well as Venezuelan folk songs and some of her own compositions. 

She is currently working on her first solo project comprised of music and production by Javier Limón– that has been signed by IMG/Casa Limón Records.  Her album will be released in early 2019 and will be distributed worldwide through The Orchard.

Reviews

“Nella is a new voice and important artist from the Americas. I have been lucky to collaborate with her and deeply respect her distinctive and soulful artistry”

Gustavo Dudamel

“Nella, a Venezuelan singer living in New York who can convey flamenco tension even in a near-whisper, to perform a full album of his own songs. They are poetic outpourings of longing and resolve accompanied mostly by pristine acoustic picking, with Iberian and Latin American underpinnings. The title song, “Voy” (“I Go”), is about leaving everything behind; there’s proud determination behind its delicacy.”
