According to the New York Times, Lauren Henderson’s voice is somewhere between “a comforting whisper and a convincing declaration”. With roots in Panama, the Caribbean island of Montserrat and the United States, Henderson presents an eclectic, versatile and, above all, original style sung in English and Spanish. The specialist magazine Downbeat has called her a “vibrant new star” of vocal jazz. Her latest album, Alma oscura, has been at the top of the charts for several weeks. Henderson has toured in France, Italy, Belgium, Germany, South Africa, Mexico, Russian and Spain. Even the producers of The Drowning used a piece by Henderson to complete the soundtrack of their suspense film. A talented newcomer to vocal jazz comes to the Plaça Reial club.
