ABOUT

Latanya Alberto is a young multidisiplinary artist. 

 

Having had music in her life from an early age, Latanya began her professional career as independent artist at the age of 19. She released her debut EP Ruminate in 2018. 

 

This was her first signature of the unique soulful sounds, mellow vibes and poetic lyrics she creates, and continues to create in subsequent releases. 

 

Her third EP  ‘The Royal Escape’ came out in 2021 and fired of many new collaborations and opportunities as people start to recognize a noice and headstrong sound. One of which is a new collaboration with her band that gives opportunity to do what she likes most; performing live on stage.

 

She kicked 2021 off with her live performance on the stage of Eurosonic-Noorderslag, performed on the COLORS platform twice and has performed several times with the Metropole orchestra. Latanya also has not remained unnoticed. She is featured in several magazines and platforms like ID and Metal magazine, Clash magazine, Equate Magazine, Fred Perry and Okayplayer. She has now released her EP 'Home' extending the depth surrealism and experimentalism in soul, jazz, and influences from all over.

 

Latanya’s musical expressions are influenced by layers of different genres. “These expressions hold a promise “ - as she herself says, “to deliver the story that needs to be heard, the consciousness that needs to be awakened, and the emotion that needs to be freed”. 

 

Latanya is heavily inspired by societal events. She tends to use her music to voice messages of social injustice, feminism and cultural awareness.  She also writes and sings about romantic emotional, spiritual and personal experiences from the perspective of young souls. No matter the subject, her meaningful lyrics always read like poetry. She likes to blend her musical stories with visual expressions to add to a total experience. Her extraordinary visuals covered by art-full photography, visual movement and music videos are a natural extension of her identity as a creative artist.
