Susana Baca confirms rare London show

Susana Baca returns to London for her first show in the UK's capital for many years, with a performance at The Jazz Cafe to open the 2023 La Linea Festival.

Created in 2001 by Como No to showcase the Latin contribution to the wider musical world and to celebrate new artists, new collaborations and new projects, La Linea has built a global reputation for bringing together a host of outstanding Latin music artists in London every April and May.

Alongside the three-time Latin Grammy winning Susana Baca, this year’s festival features Oscar winner Jorge Drexler, Netflix star Emicida, British-Colombian ensemble Mestizo, 18-piece Afro Cuban New Regency Orchestra, and much more.

Susana Baca marked the 50th year of her illustrious career in 2021 with the release of her award-winning and critically acclaimed album Palabras Urgentes, on Real World Records, so this rare appearance in London is not to be missed.
