About Perla Batalla
Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Perla Batalla has announced she will return to the E.U. and the U.K. in 2020 to perform her critically acclaimed Leonard Cohen tribute show, Perla Batalla in the House of Cohen. The show has been selling out to rave reviews in Europe, Canada and The U.S. throughout 2019.
Batalla’s homage to her longtime friend and mentor, Leonard Cohen, includes selected songs and personal stories gathered from two decades of touring and recording with one of music and literature’s most prolific visionaries.
Cohen’s passing in 2016 reaffirmed the singers’ mission of sharing the lesser-known songs of Canada's poet laureate to those mostly familiar with the well-known, Hallelujah. The evening reveals the timelessness of Cohen’s art through Batalla’s signature cross-cultural style, to convey her sincere respect and deep love for the music, the poetry, and most of all, for her dear friend.
Perla says of her Cohen tribute, “Performing this show is deeply personal. These songs are part of my fiber, my makeup. They run through my veins.”
