Biography

Marta Gómez is a singer and composer from Colombia, currently residing in New York City. Graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Berklee College of Music, after receiving the Best Achievement Scholarship, Marta Gómez has developed an extensive music career in the US.

Marta and her group perform a repertoire of original compositions based on Latin American rhythms. She mixes the joy of the Caribbean with the nostalgia of the Andes, adding jazz and pop elements. With more than 70 compositions, she has traversed Colombian cumbias and bambucos, Argentine zambas, Cuban son and Peruvian landos, with results that evoke in whatever language she is singing in. That may be the reason that lead Marta to share the stage with musicians of different genres such as Bonnie Raitt , John Mayer, Totó la Momposina and Mercedes Sosa. Marta was also chosen to record Kris Kristofferson’s “The Circle” on a tribute to this great American icon. Marta “lifted that song up to when it’s supposed to be, to where it belongs,” according to Kristofferson himself.

In March 2003, Marta’s song “Paula Ausente”, based on the book “Paula” by Isabel Allende, won the The SIBL Project International songwriting contest as the best song inspired by a South American book. The song was included on a CD among artists such as Tom Waits and David Bowie.

    Uno de los mejores "descubrimientos" músicales que he hecho en los últimos meses. Divina Voz, y canciones sencillas, hermosas y espléndidas !! Magistral. Es bien Relax. La puedo comparar un poco con Norah Jones, y Eva Cortés. Eva Cortés es una cantante de Jazz proveniente de Honduras, con el mismo estilo de Marta Gómez.
