NELLA IS A NEW VOICE HAILING FROM THE VENEZUELAN ISLAND OF MARGARITA.
A 2019 Latin GRAMMY Winner for Best New Artist and a Berklee College of Music alum, Nella’s music is a meeting place for her country’s folklore roots, the influence of her contemporaries, and the music of the Andalusian region.
Born in Isla Margarita, an island in the Caribbean Sea off the north-eastern coast of Venezuela, Nella has performed with artists such as Alejandro Sanz, Jennifer Lopez, Susana Baca, Carlos Vives and many more. After enrolling at Berklee College of Music in Boston, she met Latin GRAMMY-winning Spanish composer, producer and guitarist, Javier Limón who has worked with several top singers including Fado superstar Mariza and Afro-Spanish singer, Buika.
In 2018, Nella was invited to sing the title track in the film Everybody Knows, directed by Oscar Award winner Asghar Farhadi, and appeared alongside Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz. After a series of sold out performances in Spain, Latin America, Mexico and the US, Nella released her debut album Voy on May 31st 2019, written and produced by Javier Limón for which she won Best New Artist at the 2019 Latin GRAMMYs.
More recently, Nella wrapped up her first US national tour with IMG Artists with sold out shows in New York City, Boston, San Francisco and Chicago and continues to enchant audiences worldwide.
