Nella is a new voice hailing from the Venezuelan Island of Margarita

A Berklee College of Music graduate -where she shone as a soloist in her own right-, her music is a meeting place for her country’s folklore roots, the influence of her contemporaries, and the music of the Andalusian region. Above all, she is a handful of songs that she sings with her bare soul.

More recently, Nella was asked to join the stellar cast of Oscar Award winner Asghar Farhadi’s new movie ‘Todos lo saben’ which includes Javier Bardem, Ricardo Darín and Penélople Cruz. In the movie, she sings songs written by Limón exclusively for the screenplay. It opened the Cannes Festival in May.

During her 2018 tour, Nella presented a repertoire that included the songs featured in Farhadi’s movie, a brand new repertoire written by Limón, as well as Venezuelan folk songs. She sang in stages across the US, Panamá, Venezuela, Mexico, Spain and the UK.

After 2 years of filling out theaters with only 3 singles available, Nella recently released her first album entitled “Voy” (I am moving forward) on may 31st, 2019 -comprised of music and production by Javier Limón- and has already been signed by IMG/Casa Limón Records and being distributed worldwide through The Orchard.

After being nominated to the 20th Latin Grammy Awards in the Best New Artist category, Nella earned the top prize, a well-deserved recognition to her talent.

As a soloist, Nella has performed with artists such as Alejandro Sanz, Jennifer Lopez, Carlos Vives, Luis Enrique, Susana Baca, Los Amigos Invisibles, Monsieur Periné, Caramelos de Cianuro and Guaco.
