Estrella Acosta & Gabriel Santiago @ KUT 1/13/12
Cuban native, UT graduate, and Amsterdam resident Estrella Acosta is an extraordinarily versatile vocalist, which could probably be traced back to her equally versatile background. Acosta has no problem singing anything from Cuban folk songs to jazz to Brazilian music – she’s vocally all over the map in the best way possible. Born in Brazil, Gabriel Santiago is an Austin based, award-winning composer and guitarist. Taking influence from a wide variety of styles including Brazilian, jazz, and classical music, Santiago’s compositions are deep and intricate. Listen to Estrella Acosta and Gabriel Santiago performing together on Sunday at Casa Karen, live on KUT with host Michael Crockett.
