ELJURI Live Concert to Benefit NYCLU

Doors: 6:00pm  /  Ani Cordero: 6:30pm  /   Eljuri: 7:15pm

"The sound of Eljuri’s songs is a contagious amalgamation of danceable rhythms with lyrics that address social issues." –HOUSTON CHRONICLE

Born in Guayaquil, Ecuador to Lebanese and Spanish parents, Cecilia Villar Eljuri was raised as an immigrant in New York City. This impassioned singer, songwriter and guitarist tours internationally as a power-trio performing her infectious grooves, spreading her uplifting message and affecting positive social change. Eljuri navigates through musical landscapes ranging from rock, funk, bolero, reggae, and Afro-Cuban rhythms, all presented with an elegant and empowered female voice.

Eljuri is honored to bring her fusion of traditional latin roots with a modern edge to DROM and to donate 100% of her proceeds from this concert to the New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU). https://www.nyclu.org/


As an ‘artivist’ deeply connected to her immigrant experience and singing in her native Spanish sprinkled with English, Eljuri represents the urban Latina leading by example as an award winning songwriter, sponsored guitarist and outspoken advocate for equal opportunity and social justice. This timely benefit concert is in support of the NYCLU whose work includes providing legal advice to immigrants. 

 

She inspires and empowers audiences throughout the Americas. Touted as one of the best Latina electric guitar players in the world, Eljuri is a proud member of the Gibson Family of Artists.


Puerto Rican singer/songwriter/activist Ani Cordero is the invited opening acoustic performer for the event. As a passionate storyteller of the first order, winding through topics from feminism, immigration and #BlackLivesMatter to friendships, relationships and love. Her latest CD Querido Mundo is an original work of political protest and love songs - Ani’s love letter to a complicated world - that aims to inspire political resistance and support for social justice.
