The Show on the Road – Silvana Estrada

The Show on the Road – Silvana Estrada

This week, to help celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, The Show On The Road brings you conversation with a rising star in folklorico-pop hailing from Veracruz, Mexico: Silvana Estrada.


Currently on her first tour of the United States opening for Rodrigo y Gabriela, Estrada has already made a name for herself in Mexico, renowned for her deft finger-picking on the Cuatro, and her ever-bending, darting vocal mastery. Songs from her first EP, including the soaring electronic-beat driven β€œEl Guardo,” have been listened to over twenty million times and counting — and a collaboration with Mexican roots-rock hero Natalie Lafourcade came last year too.

At only 24, Estrada, the daughter of two instrument makers, is just coming into her own as a songwriter, dipping into her love affairs and private passions with a true, clear-eyed, poet’s pen. Singles off her debut album Marchita for Glassnote Records have already landed to great acclaim, and she’s the label’s first Spanish-language signing ever. Look no further than the heartbreaker β€œTristeza” for a first taste of her rustic, primordial sound.
