“Outstanding Ecuadorian-born, New York-based singer-songwriter Eljuri… Fusing socially conscious lyrics with blistering guitar, she blended missionary fervor with impeccable musicianship.” –CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
Born in Guayaquil, Ecuador to Lebanese and Spanish parents, Cecilia Villar Eljuri was raised in New York City. This passionate singer, songwriter and guitarist tours internationally. Currently, her, ‘La Lucha Tour’ includes performances in Canada, the US, Mexico and Colombia. Performing live as a power-trio, Eljuri navigates through musical landscapes ranging from rock and pop-punk, bolero, reggae, and Afro-Cuban rhythms, all presented with an elegant and empowered female voice.
As an ‘artivist’ deeply connected to her Latin roots and immigrant experience, Eljuri delivers a bilingual message of protest and universal truths through her award-winning songs. Touted as one of the best Latina electric guitar players in the world, Eljuri is a proud member of the Gibson Family of Artists.
A modern take on a romantic bolero, filled with Latin American melancholy that recalls great ballroom dancing and Caribbean sensuality.
A plea to stop global conflicts over neighboring countries' borders.
A bilingual roots reggae song protesting gun violence that grooves with lilting reggae, bursts of ska and a powerful guitar solo.
