Sounds Like: Jenny Lewis, Cat Power
Latin Grammy-nominated Colombian singer Mónica Giraldo makes a point to take her traditional Latin-folk influences and refresh them to sound uniquely modern. It’s an approach that’s similar to Jenny Lewis’s Americana tastes and the works of Billy Bragg and Wilco on the Woody Guthrie-inspired Mermaid Avenue, and Giraldo’s voice and songwriting is just as enjoyable as those artists. Check out her latest album, 2014’s Que Venga la Vida, available on Spotify.
