Gloria Arjona

Singer, Storyteller, Author

I was born in El Paso, Texas, and grew up in Mexico City, with long stays in Yucatan, Quintana Roo, Chiapas, and Chihuahua. Thanks to this experience, I learned to observe the cultural complexity of Mexico, which determined my interest in history, literature, and music.
Singing is my passion. I have different music projects, as a soloist and with my Brazilian jazz band "Along for the Ride". My performances can be educative and cultural-oriented, or merely recreational.

Sabor a Bolero

Boleros are the most romantic Spanish songs. From Argentina to the US, people sing their poetic sweet & sour lyrics, and dance to their groove, that can be slow, or played as a Cha Cha, Rumba or Mambo. "Sabor a Bolero" is a project dedicated to the research and performance of boleros, and their Brazilian counterpart, Samba-canção. We can play as a duo, trio, quartet, up to a septet, and sing in Spanish, Portuguese, and English.

Along for the Ride is a multicultural group of musicians from the US, Mexico, and Brazil with a common passion for jazz, in particular Brazilian jazz. We are a 7-band member, but we can play as duo, trio, etc.
