Montserrat

"Many would say that the Miami Sound has longed been defined—aka, Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine, Willy Chirino, Carlos Oliva, KC & the Sunshine Band, and many others. But then an artist comes along that incorporates Miami’s sweet n spicy tropical aroma--combined with an international Euro flavor and classical music nuances—and you get Miami’s newest singing sensation Montserrat Franco. With a repertoire that stems from Pop, Brazilian music, combined with elements of Jazz, Montserrat brings a level of sophistication, versatility and personal charm that in little time has propelled her into one of the most in-demand artists of the local South Florida music scene—performing at all kinds of special events and concerts (Bobby Ramirez for Wow Miami) Montserrat has been divinely gifted with a unique and magnificent voice,--an international world class singer who can captivate the heart and soul of the listener-- unlike any other! You will find Montserrat's exquisite renditions of the lovely songs on her stylistically varied and orchestrated production not only joyously uplifting,-- but also comforting, and spiritually healing--simply breathtakingly beautiful! "-- (Dr. Elliott Zinner, Professor Cuyahoga Community College Cleveland, Ohio) Commencing her musical training and career in classical music, she steadily evolved as a vocalist of eclectic versatility. Broadening her prodigious array of talents she researched and practiced diverse lyrical styles ranging from Jazz to World Sound in seven languages which she is fluent in, all with her own distinctive mastery and flair. In the last few years, she both produced and recorded several CD’s in Israel along with research projects in ethnomusicology the field of the “Sephardic Music” and about the music and culture of the Guarani’s ethnic group. She has performed classical and folk compositions in concerts around the world with prestigious symphonic and chamber orchestras, jazz and folk urban bands. To date she has captivated the hearts of audiences and rave reviewers from Brazil, Italy, the Caribbean Islands, Spain, Israel, Paraguay, Croatia, Australia and the USA. Her newest CD "Montserrat" produced by Kiki Sanchez is now available in stores worldwide and is on promotional tour."
