Acercarse a ‘La Lucha,’ la nueva producción de Eljuri,
es establecer una conexión directa a las tradiciones
Ecuatorianos, Libanesas y Neoyorquinos en su música.
Sobre todo, en estos tiempos aciagos, de incertidumbres y
violencia innecesaria, un álbum como ‘La Lucha’ conecta
con un espacio que está a favor de la vida, de la esperanza.
Es en esta, su tercera producción, Cecilia Villar Eljuri
demuestra su madurez como cantautora, no teme a mirar
hacia diferentes horizontes rítmicos. Ha madurado un
estilo guitarrístico muy personal heredado de influencias
como Jimmy Page, David Gilmour, Nancy Wilson y Bonnie
Raitt, y con estas figuras en el equipaje, Eljuri viaja con su
guitarra a través de paisajes musicales que van desde el
rock y el pop-punk, hasta el bolero, pasando por el reggae,
los ritmos afro-caribeños y la incondicional influencia
de África, todo esto presentado con elegancia y una voz
femenina y empoderada.

La Lucha (The Fight)
Eljuri’s new album ‘La Lucha’ establishes a direct musical
connection to her global influences; her Ecuadorian,
Lebanese and American traditions. Especially in these dark
times of uncertainty and unnecessary violence, an album
like ‘La Lucha’ connects us to a hopeful and life-affirming
space. It is on this, her third solo production, that Cecilia
Villar Eljuri demonstrates her maturity as a songwriter;
not afraid to explore different rhythmic horizons. Over the
years, she has developed her personal guitar style influenced
by the likes of many greats including Jimmy Page,
David Gilmour, Nancy Wilson and Bonnie Raitt and with
this album affirms herself as one of the greatest female
electric guitar players in the world. Eljuri navigates through
musical landscapes ranging from rock and pop-punk, to
bolero, reggae, and Afro-Caribbean rhythms, all presented
with an elegant and empowered female voice.
