Experience iLe’s hypnotic vocals infused with fierce spirit and Puerto Rican traditions.

iLe is a gifted vocal artist with a musical background in Latin and Puerto Rican music traditions. Born into a family of artists, iLe’s start was as a lead vocalist for her brother’s band, Calle 13. iLe sang when she was only 18 years old at the 8th Annual Latin Grammy Awards. Soon after iLe forged her own path with her first solo project, iLevitable, which earned a Grammy for “Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album” in 2017 and a nomination at the Latin Grammy Awards for “Best New Artist.”

iLe’s second album, Almadura, combines the words “soul” and “strength,” drawing from the Puerto Rican armadura (armor). Almadura received critical acclaim in Latin and U.S. music scenes. NPR lauded her “musical stands against injustice and inequality, [and] passionate statements about cultural pride.” BillBoard described iLe’s newest tracks as “ambient electronic sounds layered with old-school tropical styles and rhythms.”

Be swept away by iLe’s free-wheeling vocals and intimate storytelling on March 4 as part of the Arts at the Armory’s Spotlight Series:
