Yilian Cañizares wins the Swiss Music Award

Yilian Cañizares “A RADIOUS FACE OF WORLD MUSIC” Winner of the 2021 Swiss Music Prize. At the official ceremony in Lugano, the violinist, singer and composer gave a very emotional speech that was preceded by a magnificent solo performance.

“Yilian is an immeasurable force. She sings, plays, dances, leads, decides everything, is not afraid of anything, neither of pandemics nor of doubts. She is a feminist role model and a little girl in pursuit of her childhood. Her music reconciles the oceans. A life lesson.” – Arnaud Robert
