Sofia Rei

SANCTUARY FOR INDEPENDENT MEDIA, FRIDAY

Buenos Aires local and expert vocalist Sofia Rei shares her culture and worldly narrative by combining traditional South American rhythms and folklore with jazz harmonies and electronic sound to create masterfully improvised pieces of music. Rei was recognized for her unique sound in 2011, winning an Independent Music Award for her sophomore album, Sube Azul, in the World Beat category. Rei is well-traveled and -toured, and her experiences in Europe, Asia and North and South America seem to have helped her cultivate her latest album De Tierra Y Oro (Of Earth and Gold) released this year, which the artist describes as “philosophical wandering.” (Nov. 9, 7 PM, $10, 3361 6th Ave., Troy, 272-2390)
