With a virtuoso vocal that flows between the Andean, Creole, Afro-Peruvian and Latin American folk traditions, Peruvian singer Merian gives an exciting and inclusive new face to Latin root music.
Born into a family rooted in Lima and Ayacucho, a region in the Peruvian
Sierra filled with traditional music, they grew up singing, playing and
listening to Andino rhythms, Creole music and Latin American folk songs.
Their 2016 debut album Raíz/Es – recorded live in the rehearsal room of the Symphonic Orchestra of the National Grand Theatre in Lima – compiles
stunning Peruvian and Latin American folk songs in an acoustic format of guitar, double bass, Peruvian cajón and voice.
We are excited to present Merian’s first concert in the global north, an
absolute treat for roots and world music fans and an inspirational
grassroots political force for LGBTQI+ people.
Merian will also facilitate a free song-making and singing workshop as part of Outburst Queer Arts Festival Youth Takeover Day.
