Alisa Amador at Caramoor

Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts 149 Girdle Ridge Rd, Katonah

When experiencing the effortless maturity of Alisa Amador firsthand, you’ll be forgiven for thinking she’s been at the forefront of the contemporary singer-songwriter scene for years. In fact, her arrival came after winning the 2022 NPR Tiny Desk Contest, and once again that contest has cast a deserved spotlight on a rising star. Singing in both Spanish and English, weaving captivating narratives with her charming voice and self-possessed presence, Amador’s jazz-tinged, poetic songcraft makes her a worthy modern torchbearer for the likes of Joni Mitchell and Norah Jones.
