Mar Sala: Latin Singer/Songwriter
Based in Brooklyn, Marta Hernández,(aka Mar Salá) is a self taught musician from Seville. With the collaboration of many accomplished musicians from all over the world, she mixes Latin sounds such as Rumba Flamenca, Brazilian rhythms and Spanish pop, with swing, Cajun and Rock. Marta’s original compositions are a cross over between the Flamenco air of Seville and the eclectic sounds of New York City. Mar Salá has performed in Spain, Germany, Turkey and Puerto Rico. Mar Salá released her two Cds in 2009: Primavera and Take Me to Bahia. She is currently working on ENTRE 2 RIVERS, an album of Flamenco, Pop, Funk, Rock and Bossa Nova, “my attempt to build a musical bridge between Brooklyn and Seville, Spain, my two souls, my two countries. With it, I want to be able to transmit this spirit in order to connect and perpetuate the rhythms and sounds of Spain and New York and to reach the most people as possible. The fusion of the old and new continents will not only preserve these rhythms, but also help to take them further into the future” ENTRE 2 RIVERS is planned to be released in May of 2013.
