Heard Entertainment and Austin Vida present Déjenme Llorar, a night celebrating the passionate, serendipitous Latin soul of Latin Grammy winner Carla Morrison at Empire Garage on Wednesday night, Oct. 2. This concert is also serving as showcase of sort for her new company, Pan Dulce Productions. This special evening, like its namesake album, is sure to enrapture Morrison’s fans here in Austin all over again.
Co-headlining the concert will be Argentinian indie-pop artist Sol Pereryra. Although relatively unknown in the US, Pereryra is a veteran in the Latin Alternative music scene. In 2001 Sol formed popular Argentinian indie band Los Cocineros, which recorded 7 albums. Pereryra is a composer and a multi-instrumentalist playing the trumpet, guitar, the Venezuelan cuatro, ukulele, percussion, and vocals) all of which you can hear on her 2nd album, Comunmixta. In 2008 Pereryra became a member of Grammy winner Julieta Venegas’ band and performed on her critically acclaimed MTV Unplugged album.
Also Joining Morrison for the concert will be Mexico City-based singer-songwriter (by way of Tijuana) and member of the Pan Dulce Productions family, Jandro. Aside from being a solo artist himself, Jandro was also part of the winning team that created Morrison’s 2-time Latin GRAMMY winning album and title track (as a recording engineer) for Déjenme Llorar (2012).
