Valeria Matzner

Uruguayan-born/Toronto-based singer-songwriter Valeria Matzner has demonstrated an affinity for bridging the iconic roots, rhythms, and melodies of her native South America with her own ever-evolving and exploratory stylistic eclecticism — encompassing everything from the excitement of candombe and samba and the passion of tango to the grungy pop appeal of rock and the improvisational heights of jazz.

Since arriving in Canada, Valeria Matzner has performed alongside accredited artists such as Hilario Duran, Darren Sigesmund, Aleksandar Gajic, Darryl Jahnke, Celso Machado, Salvador Ferreras, Lache Cercel, among others. Valeria Matzner has been featured at the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, the Vancouver Folk Music Festival, the Toronto Jazz Festival, the Victoria Jazz Festival, Beaches Jazz Festival, among others and at music venues in Tokyo, Manila, Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Montreal, Vancouver, Toronto and New York.

Anima, Matzner’s first solo album, Anima garnered great national and international reviews and has been honored with a Global Music Award.

Now, with measured and matured songwriting chops and a new-found perspective on her Uruguayan heritage, the Montevideo native takes a focused deep-dive into the roots of her musical soul on her second solo album since migrating to Canada, Tamborilero (Lulaworld Records 2023).
