Nil Lara

Cuban-American singer/songwriter Nil Lara spent most of his childhood in Venezuela, where he learned both English and Spanish while attending a local institute called Washington Academy. In addition, a small guitar known as cuatro became his major inspiration to get involved in world music. Back in the U.S., the University of Miami allowed him to do research on Cuban-related styles such as son and guajira. Nil Lara, son of a talented pianist who did not pursue a professional career, started playing locally along with Haitian and Cuban musicians. He was captivating with his melodic vocals and lyrics that were based on personal experiences. After debuting with My First Child, a self-titled album followed in 1996. ~ Drago Bonacich, Rovi

Saw him play at The Belly Up on Cedros in Solana Beach CA. Loved him from the first. Any plans for another album?
I first heard him on WXPN in Philly and have been a fan ever since. Picked his CD up used at a local Cash Converters for $4.99 and have never seen it in any stores. Too bad, this album should have made him a star. Way better than that American Idol trash that mainstream Americans seem to desire(like eating scraps out of a McD's dumpster!).
Also saw him in NY in person and can't believe he hasn't done more work. I was also hooked!!

Same here...liste n e d for the 1st time at a Tower Record listening station & was hooked!!!! Then he fell off the face of earth :( Dude is bad asssssssss!! ! ! ! Caught him in a HBO movie about Arturo Sandoval.... g u e s s I gotta move to Florida
Been a fan since 1997, unfortunatel y I've never heard anything other than his 1996 self-titled album. Even after 14 years, I still love these songs.

Nil is an underappreci a t e d genius. Whole chapter devoted to him in the book "Rock and Roll Will Save Your Life" by Steve Almond.
Actually got to see him at the Stephen Talkhouse in Miami.
Thanks, Nil. Like finding a diamond in the desert.
