KORDELYA is a Mexican-American artist and songwriter who will be releasing her debut album in early March. The album was spearheaded originally by her single Terco which has over 200K+ streams and was featured on numerous Spotify-curated playlists like Fresh Finds: Latin, Editor’s Picks Mexico, and Academia Pop. Her passion for ethnic, percussive instruments and electronic production develops a vibrant fusion of exotic sounds and powerful lyrics. Her upcoming album is a demonstration of just that as it combines an eclectic array of textures, ranging from dark trap-leaning production to more light-hearted, synth-based sounds.
In 2019 KORDELYA opened up for Ximena Sariñana in Monterrey, Mexico on August 2nd and released her biggest single to date entitled Consentido, which she performed live nationally on Telemundo. The music video for Consentido was featured exclusively on NYLON Español as well. 2020 is going to be a big year for one of Latin music’s most promising emerging talents.
