Keren Abreu: Loss & Longing
Born and raised in the Bronx, New York and the proud daughter of Dominican immigrants, Keren Abreu is a singer-songwriter whose music is as multidimensional as she is. Keren’s musical journey has taken her from the pulpit of her childhood church to the classrooms and stages of her alma mater, and more recently to sold-out venues across New York City. Her music is a multilingual blend of folk lyricism, pop melodies, and powerhouse vocals. Éxito, released in July 2020, is her first EP, a 5-song exploration and celebration of queerness, afro-latinidad, spirituality, and the people and places she calls home.
“Loss and Longing” is Keren Abreu’s Joe’s Pub debut. Navigating the loss of her Abuela’s memory, and the dissolution of her relationship with her father, she uses stories, visuals, and songs to explore grief in the absence of physical loss.
