Perla Batalla is a very interesting lady. She was a long-time singer in Leonard Cohen's band, and she is still good friends with him. He encouraged her to embark on a solo career and to sing his songs, which she does magnificently.
She is also into Mexican folk music, and is an accomplished songwriter in her own right. She sings in both English and Spanish, sometimes switching languages in the middle of a verse. All of her music is just outstanding.
I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like this amazing performance by Perla of Leonard Cohen's "Bird on a Wire". Never before have I seen an artist pour so much raw emotion into a performance on stage. I am left awestruck and speechless every time I watch and listen to this.
