The combination of original words and music, an exceptional band and her own superb vocal abilities make Eliana Cuevas an artist to both appreciate and watch out for.

Her Latin American songwriting style with musical elements that draw on Latin American popular tradition, jazz and more, results in a branch of world music impossible to define.

Joining Cuevas for her performance in Victoria at Hermann’s Jazz Club is her band featuring Ross MacIntyre, Daniel Barnes, Jeremy Ledbetter and Alexander Brown.

Cuevas performas on Friday Nov. 9, at 8 p.m. at Hermann’s Jazz Club. Tickets are $19 in advance and $22 at the door and are available at Lyle’s Place, Ditch Records and the Victoria Jazz Society office. Call 250-388-4423, or go to rmts.bc.ca.
