Eljuri “La Lucha” Album Release Concert

October 12 2016
Ticket purchase includes free advance copy of the Eljuri CD ‘La Lucha’ available upon entry to DROM.

Eljuri creates a sonic reflecting pool. This energizing musician and performer absorbs drops of influence from all over the world, from cultures that she calls her own and others into which she dives to discover their treasures. Her music is sometimes a mirror lake reflecting this generation’s global fusion and sometimes a turbulent sea churning with cultural clashes.

Cecilia Villar Eljuri was born in Guayaquil, Ecuador and raised in New York City. From a young age she was immersed in music and the arts, demonstrating a singular focus for her passion. Sensitive and committed, of Latin blood and heart, this passionate singer, and award-winning songwriter has toured all over the U.S., Mexico, South America and Canada. Touted as one of the best female guitar players in the world, Eljuri is inspired by everything from Nancy Wilson and Jimmy Page to BB King and Bonnie Raitt, from the scratchy drop of the guitar on a Marley song to the ripple of the Cuban tres. “I’m not a shredder,” she says. “I love all the muted, licky stuff you get in reggae. When I listened to music as a kid, my ear would gravitate to hooky guitar lines, to soaring harmonic solos, and to the heavy rhythmic strums you’d hear from a flamenco player.”

Eljuri’s third studio album, ‘La Lucha’ will be released October 14th 2016. Celebrate the release of ‘La Lucha’ with Eljuri on guitars and vocals, Alex Alexander on Drums and Johnny Pisano and Tracy Wormworth on Bass. Ticket purchase includes an advance copy of the CD ‘La Lucha’ available at the door when you arrive!
