“Musical class on an international level meets driving Caribbean rhythms and first class Latin.”

- HAMBURG MORNING DAILY

“Poetry and Rhythm—Subtle, strong, elegant, sophisticated yet simple and honest, that is how I would describe Eliana Cuevas’ singing, stage presence and music. She impresses with her strength but is never forceful. South American rhythms, poetry and jazz are all elements of her music, which obviously flows from the core of her being.”
