Perla Batalla

Saturday, November 5, 7pm

As a Grammy-nominated singer and touring band member with the legendary songwriter Leonard Cohen, Perla Batalla knew there was much of Cohen’s body of work she still wanted to perform and record. Cohen’s passing in November 2016 reaffirmed Batalla’s mission of sharing the lesser-known songs of Canada’s poet laureate to a younger public mostly familiar with the well-covered, “Hallelujah.”

Perla Batalla In the House of Cohen features selected songs and rare personal anecdotes that serve to reveal the timelessness of Cohen’s art through Batalla’s signature cross-cultural style. Having recorded and toured with Leonard Cohen for over ten years on multiple world tours, Perla launched her solo career with Cohen’s encouragement. Since then she has recorded seven albums, been featured in film and television, and performed and recorded with artists such as Lou Reed, k.d. lang, John Cale, Sonny Rollins, Jackson Browne, Duquende, Luz Casal, Laurie Anderson, David Sandborn and George Duke.

“Onstage, offstage, digital or analog, I love Perla Batalla.”
