No strangers to performing with each other, Eliana and Jeremy have been performing together in various configurations for over 15 years, including Eliana’s last three albums which earned them two US Independent Music Awards for Best World Music Album and Best World Music Producer in New York, and 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 very soulful take on Latin American music with a focus on Venezuelan folkloric repertoire. Their music is jazz-infused, acoustic, and showcases original compositions and some of the most beloved Venezuelan traditional songs. Their performances are playful, adventurous, spontaneous and very moving at times, allowing their audiences to experience a wide range of emotions.

Eliana’s extraordinary vocal prowess is on full display in this duo setting, showcasing the vocal chops that have been captivating audiences around the world for years. At the hands of Jeremy Ledbetter, the piano roars, whispers, cries, and is transformed into a Venezuelan cuatro, or an “arpa llanera”, in a mesmerizing display of versatility. On stage, Eliana and Jeremy open a window into their lives, creating a display of their experiences together through music, taking advantage of their personal connection to bring their songs and stories to life.
