She’s since performed with Shakira and is now signed to Sony Music Latin. Raquel Sofía makes her Festival Miami debut in a high-energy concert that showcases her jazz-infused vocals and sonic style, which ranges from rockabilly to ska to ’80s pop-rock. “One of those rare artists that come along only once in a generation” says Grammy-winning producer George Noriega, B.M. ’95. “A bonafide future star,” says NPR.
