Lincoln Center's American Songbook
Singer-songwriter Ileana Cabra Joglar, better known as iLe, is no stranger to transformation. She rose to fame as part of the musically omnivorous Puerto Rican hip-hop group Calle 13, performing under the name “PG-13.” One of the most prominent Spanish-language groups of the last decade, Calle 13 won three Grammy Awards and 24 Latin Grammys—the most earned by a single act to date. In 2016, the artist reemerged as iLe with the release of her solo debut album, iLevitable, a bravura survey of traditional Latin forms. In 2019 she shed her skin once again with the intimate sophomore album Almadura. iLe celebrates her American Songbook debut with a varied tapestry of songs that expose the poetry and strength of this multilingual, multitalented star.
