Eliana Cuevas and Jeremy Ledbetter are well-known in the Canadian musical landscape for the outstanding quality of their work, composing and performing as bandleaders of their own Latin Jazz projects and also as side musicians for some of the best musical acts in Canada. They’re not strangers to performing with each other—a married couple with two children together—Eliana and Jeremy have been performing together in various configurations for over 15 years. Their work together includes Eliana’s last three albums which earned them two Independent Music Awards for Best World Music Album and Best World Music Producer in New York, plus a Canadian Folk Music Award for Best World Music Album.
Now they have created a new duo project that unveils their musical chemistry in a more intimate way. They feature a unique and soulful take on Latin American music with a focus on Venezuelan folkloric repertoire. Their music is jazz-infused, acoustic, and showcases original compositions plus some of the most beloved, traditional Venezuelan songs. Their performances are playful, adventurous, spontaneous, and very moving, allowing their audiences to experience a wide range of emotions. On stage they open a window into their lives, creating a display of their experiences together through music, taking advantage of their personal connection to make their songs come to life.
