Performed on Leonard Cohen’s birthday, “Perla Batalla in the House of Cohen” will pay tribute to Batalla's friend and mentor with selected songs and rare personal anecdotes. Since the former Leonard Cohen back-up singer launched her solo career with Cohen’s encouragement, Batalla has consistently earned critical acclaim for her unique voice and culture-merging compositions.
Batalla’s first CD of Cohen covers, Bird on the Wire, was produced with Cohen’s blessing. He attended the recording session, weighed in on the selections and arrangements, and uncharacteristically participated in a photo session at his Los Angeles home to promote the project. Cohen’s passing in November 2016 reaffirmed Batalla’s mission of sharing his lesser-known songs with a younger audience and demonstrating the lighter side of the “Godfather of Gloom.”
It's Ok to come by yourself—you won't be by yourself for long.℠
