One of NPR Alt.Latino’s four 2018 picks for New Spring Music, Eleanor Dubinsky is a “multilingual musician who can capture the emotions and soul of a community in a song.” (Felix Contreras, NPR)
A vocalist, guitarist, and cellist, Eleanor Dubinsky's music lives at the tender edge where jazz, world, and pop sensibilities meet emotionally forthright songwriting. Hailing from St. Louis, MO and based in NYC, her sound reflects and celebrates both her mid-western roots and the formative time she has spent in South America, Western and Central Europe and most recently, Portugal and Cape Verde. Singing in English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese, Eleanor and her multi-faceted band bring linguistic and cultural fluency to dynamic compositions that explore the fragile links between human emotions and responsibility. In the words of journalist Tom Pryor, expect lively, inviting songs and "a joyous, uplifting and deeply generous performance... just the tonic for the frayed nerves of many New Yorkers in these parlous times. Go. See her. This is music as medicine for your soul."
