Perla Batalla in The House of Cohen

Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Perla Batalla consistently earns critical acclaim for her unique voice and culture-merging compositions.  Formerly a Leonard Cohen back-up singer, the Los Angeles born vocalist launched her solo career with Cohen’s encouragement. Since then she’s recorded seven albums, been featured in films and television, and taken her unique sound on tour in some of the most prestigious venues around the world. The L.A. times writes, “Batalla is comfortable in both English and Spanish, proud of her mestiza heritage, musically adventurous and always accompanied by  impeccable performers…. above all, she is a born storyteller with a rambunctious sense of humor.” 

Celebrate the life and legacy of Leonard Cohen with “Perla Batalla in the House of Cohen.” Batalla, a Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter from Los Angeles, sang back up for Leonard Cohen. One of the most fascinating and enigmatic—if not the most successful—singer-songwriters of the late 1960s, Cohen retained an audience across six decades of music-making and poetry. Batalla will share special songs and personal anecdotes from her time and travels on the road with her mentor, who passed away in November 2016.

“Perla Batalla is a gloriously rich mixture of backgrounds, and she brings them with her to the stage with her gorgeous voice full of love, life, mournfulness and joy,” according to NoHoartsdistrict.com. “It’s a heady combination and one that works to perfection with Cohen's particular gifts.”

Batalla has toured the world with her tribute to the legend, whom she credits for helping to launch her career. Comfortable speaking both English and Spanish, she has earned critical acclaim for her “unique voice” and “culture-merging compositions.” Batalla has recorded seven albums, been featured in films and television, and performed in some of the world’s most celebrated venues.
