Eleanor Dubinsky is a “multilingual musician who can capture the emotions and soul of a community in a song.” (NPR). A vocalist, guitarist and cellist, Dubinsky sings in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese. Her music is a blend of world-beats, jazz and pop, met with emotionally forthright songwriting. "Sliding effortlessly between genre and geography,” journalist Tom Pryor describes Eleanor’s work as “joyous, uplifting and deeply generous...this is music as medicine for your soul.”
On February 27th at Rockwood, Eleanor is joined by three members of her larger ensemble: Mayra Casales (Latin percussion, vocals), Dario Acosta Teich (guitars, charango, vocals) and Michael O'Brien (bass). The quartet will perform songs from Soft Spot of My Heart, Eleanor’s third extended recording project, laid down in studios in Lisbon and NYC with a group of notable musicians from Cape Verde, Portugal, the USA, and Brazil. They will also present new compositions and familiar Latin favorites.
Eleanor performs regularly at Joe’s Pub and Rockwood Music Hall and has appeared at World Cafe Philadelphia, Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Barnes Foundation and the Guggenheim Museum. Highlight festival appearances include Lincoln Center's Boro Linc: La Casita, Philadelphia International Festival For The Arts at the Kimmel Center, 4 + 4 Days In Motion Festival (Czech Republic) and the Puerto Morelos Music Festival (Mexico).
