With a welcoming sound that embraces cumbia, vallenato, rancheras, R&B and jazz, the singer-songwriter Alea moves her audiences with messages of the spirit, social consciousness and love. Originally from La Guajira, Colombia, and now based in Brooklyn, Alea’s performance encompasses an entire generation of ethno-futuristic and folkloric music. They are celebrations of Latin America and new definitions of what “Latin Alternative” can be. Her latest album, 2021’s Alborotá, was shortlisted as among the Best Latin Music of the year by both Rolling Stone and NPR. Alea is currently crafting a new album, set to be unveiled in singles in 2024. Her latest work ventures into electronic sounds, R&B and Latin soul. With this bold exploration, Alea continues to push the boundaries of her artistry, promising an even more dynamic and diverse musical experience for audiences.

Deja Que se Rompa Todo (Let It All Break) is a new musical work that embarks on an introspective journey through heartbreak, transformation, and self-discovery. Contrary to the anticipated melancholy tone, it evolves into a celebration of shedding layers to forge this musical expression – a resounding proclamation of self-love.

Drawing from personal journal entries, Alea crafts songs spanning R&B, Latin soul, and electronic sounds. Infused with movement and transformation, the performance showcases piercing melodies, electric guitar riffs, and Afro-inspired choreography brought to life by a remarkable ensemble of dancers and musicians. The band for this performance includes Berta Moreno (tenor sax and vocals), Raquel Baena (trombone and vocals), Andrés Fonseca (drums), Argelia Arreola (vocals and dance), Luis D’ Elias (electric guitar and vocals), PJ Duffy (electric bass), and Felipe Fournier (MD).

The Uncharted concert series, now in its 10th year at Greenwich House Music School, provides a much-needed resource for New York-based musicians to develop original material, foster new collaborations, and premiere first-look projects in an intimate concert setting. 100% of all ticket sales go directly to the artist.
