Music of the Americas presents Bolivian-American vocalist Gian-Carla Tisera in a performance celebrating the release of her debut solo album Nora la Bella‚Äč.

As a Bolivian-American artist trained in the opera and theater world, Tisera's subversive musical prowess is the result of two worlds colliding to create a powerful, dynamic, and groundbreaking fusion of opera, Bolivian folk music, and Latin jazz. "Son Montuno" embraces operatic Verdi melodies, Bolivian, and Latin American songs, which explode with symphonic passion and spoken word and are embraced in a fury of sounds and textures. Tisera's debut album Nora la Bellais a ravishing musical feat in which she is joined by twice Grammy-nominated Elio Villafranca as her co-producer and by some of the best talent in the Latin jazz industry. Read about her debut album (in Spanish) in La Voz Houston.
