ARTIST SPOTLIGHT:
PERLA BATALLA
 

Janet RostonPerla Batalla in The House of Cohen reveals the timelessness of Leonard Cohen's art through Perla Batalla's signature cross-cultural style, to convey her sincere respect and deep love for the music, the poetry, and most of all for her dear friend, Leonard Cohen.

"In this show, there are times when I ask my audience to sing with me," Batalla says. "I feel that the coming together of voices has the power to touch Leonard's spirit and his lifelong devotion to art and the mysteries of the human heart. Perla BatallaLive music is about being in the moment, and I always have this secret expectation that as we lift our voices up together we will feel Leonard all around us…and we usually do.."

See more about her experiences with legendary artist Leonard Cohen on Perla's engaging and heartwarming homage.

Also, this week enjoy Perla's homage to her father's record store, Discoteca Batalla, live streamed onstage with multiple guests at CAPUCLA,
