Amanda Martinez is a singer-songwriter whose music exultingly blends her Mexican father and South African mother’s roots with Latin soul and folklore. Her latest CD "Mañana" was helmed by GRAMMY-winning producer Javier Limón who hails Martinez as "one of the greatest voices in the world." Her songs have appeared on four Putumayo world music collections: Bossanova Around the World, Latin Dreamland, Café Latino and most recently, Mexico.
Martinez has headlined at the legendary Blue Note jazz club in New York, at Toronto’s Koerner Hall and Winter Garden Theatre, at the Festival Centro Historico de Mexico and at the 2010 FIFA World Cup Festivities in South Africa. Her work also includes hosting and acting in film and television and is honorary musical ambassador for SOS Children’s Villages.
