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
