Estrella Acosta


'Tierra' Nominated for a  Latin GRAMMY® 2023 !

It is a such a joy and honor to be nominated for a Latin GRAMMY® Award!
I dedicate this album to all the great Cuban female composers who have contributed to the rich musical history of Cuba.
With their musical and poetic inspiration, they have always been at the vanguard of music worldwide.

Welcome to my world of music !

            I am a Cuban singer-songwriter based in the Netherlands. Our band of international musicians creates a fresh take on the music of my motherland, with adventurous arrangements and improvisations, while keeping the flavor and spirit that is so characteristic of its tradition.
            All of us come from different countries but we share a broad experience in Latin American music and jazz. Together we form a unique blend of creative voices.
            Our new album ‘Tierra’ shines a spotlight on the great female songwriters from Cuba, and also features my own songs. I hope you enjoy listening to our music as much as we enjoy making it!

Tierra-logo features Marc Bischoff (piano), Efraim Trujillo (saxes/flute), Samuel Ruiz (double bass), Enrique Firpi (drums), Estrella Acosta (vocals) and guests Gerardo Rosales (percussion) and Alberto Caicedo (coros).
