NEW SERIES 🎉: HOUSE CONCERTS AT HILL CENTER (HC@HC)
Elena La Fulana is a Latin Grammy-nominated instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, and leader of the DC-based bilingual Latin-folk band Elena & Los Fulanos. Originally from Managua, Nicaragua, Elena identifies as both American and Nicaraguan and her music, which ranges from twangy, heartbreak-themed folk Americana, to soothing, introspective, violin-infused Latin cumbia, reflects this dual identity. Her band, Elena & Los Fulanos, has twice been nominated for a Wammie-award, and their most recent album, Volcán, was hailed as “a bilingual folk album for the resistance” by the Washington City Paper, a publication that also selected Elena for their People Issue 2017 highlighting notable Washingtonians. Most recently, Elena has been touring with the Latin-Grammy winning and Grammy nominated band Flor de Toloache, and with them performed at the Kennedy Center Honors in 2019 and the Latin Grammys in 2021.
“The music of Elena & Los Fulanos reflects living in two worlds that graze each other, but never quite collide.”— Julyssa López, Washington City Paper
