GABY MORENO (GTM)
Latin Grammy-winner Gaby Moreno has a new album and a rich swag of much-loved tunes from her seven previous albums in a career marked by numerous accolades, including an additional two Grammy nominations. To see this trailblazer perform is to be awestruck by her breathtaking voice and exquisite guitar flourishes as she glides back and forth easily and exuberantly between bossa nova, jazz, blues and rock, with English and Spanish lyrics that honour her experiences as a Guatemalan immigrant living in the US.
Her many career highlights include co-writing the theme song for the multi-award-winning TV series Parks and Recreation (NBC) and collaborating with Van Dyke Parks on her 2019 album, ¡Spangled! featuring songs celebrating the migration of music across the Americas. She has performed several times at Lincoln Center in NYC and The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC and shared the stage with luminaries Emmy Lou Harris, Bono, Tracy Chapman, Andrea Bocelli, Ani DiFranco, Hugh Laurie and The Copper Bottom Band, Punch Brothers, Chris Thile, Nickel Creek, Buena Vista Social Club, Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings, Taj Mahal, Jackson Browne, Van Dyke Parks and many more. Moreno is the first in her country to be honoured as UNICEF goodwill ambassador in Guatemala.
