Nava: Nava

“It’s a beautiful moment for making music,” says Rodolfo Barrera, the Puerto Rican singer and songwriter known as Nava. A veteran composer of gold and platinum hits for other Latin artists, his own debut LP is a graceful pop potpourri that draws on an impressive range of contemporary musical styles, from the urban urgency of hip hop, to the irresistible rhythms of Salsa and Merengue, all bathed in the warm glow of Nava’s gentle optimism.
