Summer in the CityLizje Sarria
Colombian performer Lizje Sarria is a versatile composer, arranger, and solo artist of soulful music. Her journey into music began at the age of three when she started singing.
Enriched by the voices she heard while growing up, Lizje learned to love music from the voices of Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin, and all kinds of soulful music. Her first piano lesson came at the age of 10. As the young girl became a young woman, the music she heard expanded to include samples from all over the world. Colombian folklore, bands like Ascend the Hill, Delirious, and the voices of Mahaila Jackson, Lauren Hill, Dianne Reves, Mercedes Sosa, Concha Buika, and others enriched her voice and her knowledge. They inspired her to continue learning and training her instrument to perfection, and allowed her music to blossom.
