Mexican rising star Silvana Estrada (winner of 2022 Latin GRAMMY for ‘Best New Artist‘) has today released her new single ‘Milagro y Desastre’. The song was produced by her longtime collaborator Gustavo Guerrero. It is accompanied by an official video directed by Camila Grandi.

‘Milagro y Desastre’ is the first song that Silvana has written with only her voice – she created looped harmonies and then added textures in the studio. “This song was born out of my belief that big life-changing events are equal parts miracle and disaster”, she explains. “This idea has helped me a lot to understand and heal my experiences over the years. In this song I wanted to vindicate all the faces of love, even the love that hurts when it ends”.’

Milagro y Desastre’ follows Silvana’s recent release of a new cover of the Suzanne Vega classic ‘Tom’s Diner‘. “I rediscovered ‘Tom’s Diner’ on my first US tour performing my album Marchita,” Silvana shares. “While traveling the long highways of this vast country we came across the original a cappella version by Suzanne Vega. The song is brave in its simplicity. I felt like I was watching a beautiful movie”.Her breakthrough debut album from last year Marchita was highlighted and featured in The GuardianThe New York TimesPitchforkBBC 6MusicNPR MusicRolling Stone, and more.

Silvana’s childhood home was the setting for her NPR ‘Tiny Desk (Home) Concert‘. She grew up in a house where not only music, but instruments, were made. Both of Silvana’s parents are luthiers, and a path was worn to their home in Coatepec, a mountain town in Veracruz, by the musicians who arrived daily to commission a new violin or cello, or have their instruments repaired.

Silvana has performed and recorded with artists including Natalia Lafourcade, who like Silvana, grew up outside Veracruz as well as Julieta VenegasAndrew BirdHelado NegroDevendra BanhartJorge Drexler, the LA Philharmonic among others. Last month she also collaborated with AURORA for a live version of ‘Care For Me’ which has over 2 million views already, watch here:

The range of emotions Silvana displays is nothing short of a wonder. She can be inviting and tender at one moment while making the hairs stand out on the back of your neck the next. Marchita is an enchanting rollercoaster ride of emotions, exhuming the sweetest desire and the deepest despair, pierced by her poetic, arresting delivery. A natural performer if there ever was one.
