6:30PM Festival begins
7:00PM – 7:45PM Sidestage
8:00PM – 9:30PM Main Stage
World-class vocalist, Perla Batalla is a full-throated songstress who has worked with Leonard Cohen, k.d.lang, Nick Cave and Laurie Anderson, Perla inhabits her music completely, and is “…an astonishingly rich contralto capable of stratospheric arches of unadulterated emotion.” Songtalk Magazine
In addition to her wonderful contemporary and tradition latin concerts, and salutes to Leonard Cohen, and Jazz, Perla and songwriting partner, David Batteau now offer Blue House, a full length theatrical concert inspired by the journals, frescos and canvasses of two of the greatest Mexican painters of the twentieth century, Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. The show is a fearless glimpse into the unrestrained passion of the creative spirit framed by an epic love affair charged with ego, devotion, betrayal and genius.
“… Batalla’s music caresses … a born storyteller with a rambunctious sense of humor…” – Los Angeles Times
.. Perla Batalla possesses one of the finest singing voices on planet Earth…” – Latino Los Angeles
