The Andean Nightingale
Sylvia Falcón is an avant-garde and innovative singer. Her approach oscillates between the traditional music of the Peruvian Andes, mixed melodies and the diversity of electronic and urban sounds. Her impressive vocal palette is reflected in her four studio albums. Her aesthetic research has set a new benchmark in the production of Andean music, which can be appreciated in her shows and video clips. She performs on the most important stages in Peru and has been recognized by the Congress of the Republic for her contribution to the promotion of the teaching and dissemination of the Quechua language, for which she is an ardent advocate. Sylvia Falcón has a strong link with the Andes thanks to her parents, originally from the provinces of Huancavelica and Ayacucho.
From a very young age, she has shown amazing artistic abilities. Sylvia Falcon is a member of the National Advisory Commission on Culture and a recognized anthropologist. Sylvia Falcon is today THE Peruvian soprano, as comfortable with opera and rock as with the huayno, the melancholic song of the Andes. She is today the great figure of a unique tradition from the Andes called the “coloratura andina”, the only true and worthy heir to the great diva Yma Sumac.
