Chilean singer-songwriter Claudia Acuña sings mainly in Spanish, but her soulful, crooning alto transcends all language barriers with its powerful sense of freedom and heartfelt emotion. Born in Santiago, Chile, this cognac-voiced siren lives in New York City but remains fiercely committed to her rich heritage. A real success story, Acuña worked the coat check at the Blue Note for almost a decade before headlining the bill at the famed jazz venue. Now she’s making it big on jazz giant Branford Marasalis’s label, Marsalis Music.
