Raquel Z. Rivera & Ojos de Sofía

Raquel Z. Rivera & Ojos de Sofía weave together Dominican salves, Puerto Rican jibaro music, bomba and other Caribbean roots genres. Their neo-folk approach is quirky, playful and heartfelt. Director and singer/songwriter Raquel Z. Rivera is also an accomplished author with a Ph.D. in Sociology. She writes deceptively simple songs richly layered in imagery and symbolism, which she delivers in a distinct earthy voice that is as tender as it is haunting. Ojos de Sofía is a powerhouse team featuring guitarists and cuatristas Bryan Vargas and Alejandro Negrón; pianist Desmar Guevara; guitarist Yasser Tejeda; vocalists Catarina Dos Santos and Sandra García Rivera; bassist Juan Carlos Acosta; and percussionists Juan Gutiérrez, Obanilú Iré Allende Solana, Joan D’león-Metz and Abraham Encarnación.
