Colombian-American singer Kali Uchis released her debut album Isolation on April 6th of this year through Rinse Recordings, Universal Music Group and Virgin Records. Esquire writes, “It [Isolation] represents a worldly sampling of North and South American tastes with her astute ear for unexpected melodies. There, it occupies a space all of its own, something equally familiar and timeless while also groundbreaking and fascinating.” The album touches on a wide array of styles, from Hip Hop to Doo-Wop, Funk to Reggaeton.

Uchis’ In Your Dreams Tour kicked off in Seattle on September 13th, and will be making a stop at the Main Room at First Ave in Minneapolis on October 23rd, where she will be supported by New York R&B artist Gabriel Garzon-Montano. Tickets are still available HERE.

Speaking to NPR about her Colombian roots, Uchis says, “It’s nostalgic for me because it was such a big part of my childhood. The energy, the feeling, the smells in the air from the street food. Even the insects — the butterflies are bigger and more vibrant. The people, the culture … there’s so much magic in Colombia, so I feel like being a kid, being able to have that, being able to also call Colombia my home, it was such an important part of my introduction as an artist, too, because it’s such a big part of my life as a human being.”
