Salsa is not necessarily sex!

The Bolivian chanteuse extraordinaire brings her Latin band and sensual movements to the Main Stage.

Acclaimed by Latin Jazz Net as a 'provocative and brilliant' artist, Gian-Carla Tisera makes stunningly bold and daring crossings between opera, Latin American folk music, jazz, political song, and roots music. In August, 2014 she released her debut album, Nora la Bella, which was chosen Album of the Week by Latin Jazz Net, and of which critics rave: 'You've never heard anything like Gian-Carla Tisera’s Nora la's quite possibly a can only welcome it entirely, and you can’t help but admire her bravado. This is Tisera’s jazz opera, and it is righteous' (The Examiner). In 2014 Nora la Bella made the charts for the Grammy Awards in four categories: Album of the Year, Best New Artist, Best Latin Jazz Album and Best Music Video.

Tisera's music is an extraordinary result of her story and her personal search. She was raised in Cochabamba, Bolivia and studied music at Instituto Eduardo Laredo. She later moved to Los Angeles, California, where she completed her Undergraduate and Masters Degree in Opera Performance at the University of Southern California. Since 2008 she lives in New York, where she arrived as a traditional opera singer and paradoxically, found herself re-united with the folk music of her homeland. In New York she also discovered the liberating force of jazz.
