Sofía is one of the most passionate, charismatic and inventive vocalists on the current New York music scene. Her music explores connections between the various traditions of South American folklore,
jazz, pop, and electronic sounds. Singing in Spanish, Sofia's voice brings more than the depth and fullness of a riveting voice, tying together
diverse influences in a program full of rhythmic complexity, and a melodic purity that haunts even as it uplifts. Her ensemble produces a range of textures as diverse as the cultural roots of its members.
recently released her new album #CMPLX which features new songs with Kirk
Knight, CJ Fly, Nyck Caution and more. In the past year she has performed on several
tours including the Smoker's Club tour with Method Man & Redman, as well as with
Mick Jenkins and Kirk Knight of Pro Era. Her new video for "Closer" is out now.
