Perla Batalla: A Tribute to Leonard Cohen

Saturday, October 19, 2019, 8:00pm
Caltech Beckman Auditorium 332 S Michigan Ave Pasadena, CA 91106 Map and directions

Grammy-nominated Batalla shares a cross-cultural homage to her colleague Leonard Cohen, who encouraged the launch of her solo career. The LA Times wrote, "Batalla is...musically adventurous and always accompanied by impeccable performers…. above all, she is a born storyteller with a rambunctious sense of humor."

Batalla consistently earns critical acclaim for her unique voice and culture-merging compositions.

Formerly a Leonard Cohen back-up singer, the Los Angeles-born vocalist launched her solo career with Cohen’s encouragement. Since then she’s recorded seven albums, been featured in films and television, and taken her unique sound on tour in some of the most prestigious venues around the world.

Perla was born in Los Angeles, California, to a family immersed in music; her father, a Mexican singer and radio personality, and an Argentine mother who ran a bustling record store called Discoteca Batalla.
