Cecilia Vilar Eljuri is a multi-award winning artist, born in Ecuador and based in New York. She is one of the top Latina guitar players of the world, an even better guitar player than Carlos Santana, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton or Jimi Hendrix, according to some! She usually performs her engaged, activist songs of rock, pop, latin and reggae as a power trio.
“Her songs marked by fusions of pop and rock with Caribbean rhythms and emphasize the use of her guitar, which has been described as reminescent of a young Santana.” (Alborde)
“With her exuberant stage presence, Eljuri delivers songs with memorable hooks that immediately engage the listener.” (El Nuevo Herald)
“Cecila Villar Eljuri is a triple treat: She’s an accomplished songwriter, a great vocalist and one hell of a guitar player.” (NPR Music, Alt-Latino).
New album “Resiste” (Manovill Records-Xango) out now!
