A Conversation with Perla Batalla, Singer/Songwriter, at NAMBA on March 17 at 3 PM!

Singer/songwriter Perla Batalla was raised in Los Angeles by a family deeply immersed in music: her father, a Mexican singer and DJ; her uncle, a member of the renowned Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán; and her Argentine mother, who ran a bustling Venice record store called Discoteca Batalla. At the age of 15, Perla left home to pursue her music career. She studied opera and performed across a variety of genres including jazz, country, soul, swing, and rock. However, it wasn't until she began working with the legendary Leonard Cohen that Perla's career truly took off. After recording and touring with Cohen for more than a decade, Perla embarked on a solo career, bolstered by Cohen's encouragement.
