Estrella Acosta

Cuban vocalist Estrella Acosta is one of the most versatile Latin American singers living in Europe. Though she has never stopped singing the folk songs of her motherland, she is equally at home embracing various Brazilian and jazz idioms. With her warm earthy voice she creates an energetic yet intimate and personal style, rooted in the sounds of her native Cuba. She has left a travel footprint that truly makes her a citizen of the world. Born in Havana, she got to know the traditional music during her childhood with her family in the province of Matanzas. After completing a degree in cultural anthropology from the University of Texas at Austin and studying vocal technique, she set out to pursue her musical dreams in a journey that took her to Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, New York City and, finally, Amsterdam, where she now resides. Estrella has recorded four albums and a single for the label eStar that have won internationally acclaim, including a nomination for a Dutch Edison
