With a unique generational talent that leads the Latin pop scene, Joaquina is an artist to watch in the upcoming years.

After her global viral hits, “Freno” and “Los mejores años” Joaquina makes her debut for television by being part of the soundtrack of the series “Zorro” with the song “Si Nos Dijimos Adios”.

Joaquina confessed that the process of creating this song represented a completely new challenge for her. “I had to get into the character, into another world both emotionally and sonically, and it was a very beautiful challenge,” explained the interpreter of “Los mejores años.”

But despite being very young, with her participation in the “Zorro” soundtrack, Joaquina’s work is already becoming quite noticeable. At just 19 years old, Joaquina Valentina Blavia Canabal has burst onto the music scene with the force of a hurricane.

A Rising Star Disrupting the Latin Music Scene:

Born in Caracas, Venezuela, this young artist carries in her DNA a passion for music, inherited from the rich culture and diversity of her home country. At the age of 8, Joaquina wrote her first song. She doesn’t remember the name, only that it was in English and she felt so embarrassed at the thought of her parents seeing it that she tore the page out of the notebook, crumpled it up, and threw it away. “I would love to turn back time and not have done that,” she admits today.

Since her formative years, Joaquina aspired to a musical career. A fervent reader since the age of three, she attributes her passion for “poetry, literature, and words” as the catalyst for her musical creations, where “the lyrics” reign. However, she is aware that the final interpretation of her songs ultimately belongs to the listeners.

She is the author of a collection of bittersweet anthems dedicated to the pain of growing up, first experiences with love, loss, longing, social anxiety, and self-doubt. Using her honesty as a shield, Joaquina has carved out a fascinating niche in the contemporary pop landscape.

Joaquina was named by Billboard as “An Emerging Artist to Discover” which came shortly after Hollywood Reporter named her as part of their “club of young, gifted, and soaring.”

With an assertive stage presence, 275,000 followers on Instagram, and at least three singles with over a million streams each on Spotify, Joaquina has already secured a record deal with Universal Music Latin.

Joaquina’s Grammy Win: A Turning Point in Her Career

In 2023, at 19, she won the coveted Latin Grammy for Best New Artist. She was also nominated for Best Singer-Songwriter Album for “Los Mejores Años” her debut EP.

About winning her first Grammy: “It was like those moments when time stops and you’re in front of so much and you feel your head buzzing and everything is in slow motion. Out of nowhere, I started seeing everything in slow motion. I felt like I entered an alternate reality (laughs). I honestly didn’t expect it. Seriously, honestly, I didn’t expect it.”

Her debut album, “Los Mejores Años”, was a stellar release that solidified her position as one of the most exciting new talents in Latin music. With a vibrant mix of soul, pop, and Latin rhythms, the album tells stories of love, loss, and the experiences of youth, connecting with the sensibilities of a generation hungry for authenticity.

The album wasn’t just a critical darling; it made waves throughout the industry. Within weeks of its release, the lead single, “Rabia”, was topping charts in Venezuela, Colombia, and Argentina, and began steadily climbing the US Billboard Latin Airplay charts. The album itself debuted at No.1 on the Billboard Latin Pop Albums chart, marking an extraordinary achievement for a debut release.

One of Joaquina’s most powerful songs is “Los Mejores Años”, a heartfelt ballad that speaks to the struggles and triumphs of youth. The song’s poignant lyrics and haunting melody resonate with listeners of all ages, reminding them of the power of music to heal and inspire.
