Hailed by the press as “the voice of an angel [whose] poise and command of the stage is both mesmerizing and captivating,” (Debra Graff, Sleepless in Studio City), Julia “shines whether performing pop, jazz, or various Latin music styles, all of which she can deftly sing in eight different languages.” (George Varga, San Diego Union Tribune).
Recognized as “without a doubt the most important voice of her genre in Mexico” (Mario Moreno Ivanova, son of Cantinflas), Julia has enchanted audiences around the globe for nearly a decade, including recent performances at Mexico City’s National Auditorium, the CARIFESTA International Festival in Haiti, Harlem Jazz Club in Barcelona, National Arts Center in Ottawa, and Vitello’s E Spot in Los Angeles. She has toured extensively through the U.S., Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean and Spain behind a pair of ground-breaking, chart-topping full-length album releases: a jazz-inflected fusion titled Lumea: Songs of the World in Jazz (2013), followed by Adoro (2015). The latter featured a soul-stirring collaboration with the legendary Armando Manzanero for which the disc was eponymously named. Both albums soared to the top of the jazz-blues charts in Latin America, competing with artists such as Michael Buble and Diana Krall.
