Approximately 45 minutes with no intermission.
Alejandra Ribera is an award-winning multilingual singer-songwriter with a richly textured voice and a reputation for raw, sensitive vocals that has brought repeated comparisons to Tom Waits. Her exotic music reflects her roots in Canada and abroad and is an untamed mix of blues, folk, and pop.
Alejandra has been writing about the unexpected places we find light since the release of her critically acclaimed debut album La boca. With her trademark heart-breaking lyrics and spacious arrangements, Alejandra delves firmly into the depths of the human heart.
This concert is part of Canada Scene’s free Scene@6 series. Running every evening at 18:00 from July 2 to 23, the series showcases this country’s top folk, roots, world, and jazz artists in the NAC’s new Atrium.
