The EP delves into reevaluating where you come from, wether this is your roots, or the place you consider sacred, and empowering the sense of identity through it. Being able to disconnect your nature from what nurtured you, builds foundation for honest love.
Latanya Alberto is an Amsterdam-based singer, songwriter and performing artist. Having had music in her life from an early age, Latanya began her professional career as independent artist at the age of 19.
She released her debut EP Ruminate in 2019. This was her first signature of the unique soulful sounds, mellow vibes and poetic lyrics she creates, and continues to create in subsequent releases.
Her second EP ‘Cede’ came out in the beginning of 2020 and fired off many new collaborations as people start to recognize her novice and headstrong sound.
Last year Latanya made an appearance on the platform COLORS reintroducing her music to a world stage. She kicked 2021 off with her live performance on the stage of Eurosonic-Noorderslag and is now bridging her carreer with her new EP ‘The Royal Escape’ alongside several live appearances.
Latanya’s musical expressions are influenced by layers of different genres. “These expressions hold a promise “ - as she herself says: “to deliver the story that needs to be heard, the consciousness that needs to be awakened, and the emotion that needs to be freed”.
Latanya is heavily inspired by societal events. She tends to use her music to voice messages of social injustice, feminism and cultural awareness. She also writes and sings about romantic, emotional, spiritual and personal experiences. No matter the subject, her meaningful lyrics always read like poetry. Latanya likes to blend her musical stories with visual expressions to add to a total experience.
Her extraordinary visuals covered by artistic photography, visual movement and music videos are a natural extension of her identity as a creative artist.
