Merry Christmas

Perla Batalla

Grammy nominated vocalist, composer, and arranger Perla Batalla was born in Los Angeles, CA. Her father was a musician and owned a popular Spanish language record store. She first gained international attention as a backup singer for Leonard Cohen who later encouraged Perla to embark on a solo career.

Perla released her debut cd, Perla Batalla on the Warner/Discovery label to great critical success. Like many original artists, Perla opted to go independent early on, releasing her second album, “Mestiza” (meaning of mixed blood) on her own Mechuda Music label. “Heaven and Earth” followed, completing the Mestiza song-cycle. Both CD’s were co-written with David Batteau. They offer a vision of a vibrant culture still nourished and inhabited by mysticism, imagery, magic and myth. Amazon named Mestiza Best Independent Release of the year.

Perla Batalla’s mission of honoring her roots and exposing young audiences to the beauty of music and the Spanish language is ongoing in her outreach endeavors throughout some of the under-served communities in the United States. She has been the recipient of the United Nations Earth Charter Award for extraordinary devotion to social and economic justice. She is also the recipient of Border Book Festivals’, Premio Fronterizo Award for healing work in the world.
