Mili Bermejo

For more than two decades, Boston-based vocalist/composer Mili Bermejo has transcended the borders between cultures and musical genres. Her music blends the beautiful stories and infectious rhythms of authentic Latin American poetry/folk music with social awareness and jazz improvisation. Critics have called her "the Latin equivalent of Abbey Lincoln...a singer/composer who challenges us with her musical honesty" (Cadence) and described her inclusive sound as "part poetry-folk, part Sarah Vaughn sophistication" (Boston Magazine) and the place "where jazz meets Latin with elegance and soul" (Boston Globe).

Mili Bermejo: A Time For Love

Read "A Time For Love" reviewed by Mark Sabbatini

From the opening it's got that ever-so-subtle touch that separates moving ballads from cocktail lounge fodder. A Time For Love finds singer Mili Bermejo in a less-is-more setting, relying mostly on a piano and bass backing instead of the sextets and octets from her past few albums. It's a wise choice for an album ...
