NPR Tiny Desk Contest Winner plays her first hometown concert since receiving this life-changing news!
Alisa Amador is back from touring all over the country. This is her first time home since she received the news that she won the NPR Tiny Desk Contest. Come celebrate Alisa’s music with the Passim community!
Alisa Amador’s music is a synthesis of the many styles she’s voraciously absorbed: rock, jazz, funk and alternative folk, all wrapped in the spirit of the Latin music she grew up with. With a sound described by Vance Gilbert as, “Shawn Colvin meets Joni Mitchell has lunch with Amy Winehouse meets Suzanne Vega and Diana Krall,” and NPR calls, “a pitch-perfect rendition of my wildest dreams,” her soulful singing, poetically incisive lyrics, and syncopated rhythms, are likely to make you cry, laugh, and dance all within one set.
