Eva Cortez was born in Tegucigalpa (Honduras), grew up in Seville and now lives between Madrid and Paris. Her music reflects the influences of cultural mixing and the different genres of music developed throughout her career as a singer. During her childhood, growing up in a family of great musical tradition, was exposed to Latin American folk music. Yet we hear in her first compositions at age 16 years old, a strong influence of the blues. In January 2006 she flew to Santiago de Chile to record and co-produced “Alone With You”, her first solo album was mixed and mastered later in Paris. In this work we can find South American rhythms fused with jazz and with a gentle touch from the south of Spain. Eva feels honored to have had the collaboration of musicians with a great projection and international prestige in the Latin jazz in the folk music and flamenco: Jerry Gonzalez, Antonio Serrano, Pepe Rivero and Nono García and others. Eva In April 2008 she recorded her second album “Like Water between the toes.” This trio has as base as pianiasta Pepe Rivero and arranger, Toño Martin to bass and Mark Mondesir (musician John McLaughlin) on drums. As guests with Jerry Gonzalez, Yadam, Piranha, Antonio Serrano, Manuel Machado and Bobby Martinez. “Like water through the hands” is an album of original songs written mostly by Eva Cortes, although there are two adjustments in the Castilian two standards such as “You Do not Know What Love Is” and “La Vie en Rose”.
