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, she is a passionate singer, accomplished guitarist and award-winning songwriter who has toured all over the U.S., Mexico, South America and debuted in Canada in 2015. Her third studio album will be released in Fall 2016 and features a collection of songs that are fresh and of the times – her times and your times.
Her inspiration: “I continue to look at myself, my journeys passed and my path forward — I’m evolving and embracing it. The themes of my new songs center around stopping injustice and searching for a better way. I’m using my voice and guitar to drive and inspire positive social change.”
We are thrilled to present Eljuri – she is going to rock the Prismatic stage with her global rhythms and universal truths.
