Glenda Del E
Glenda del E was born and raised between what she describes as “two sides of the tracks” in her native Havana, Cuba and a multi-cultural Toronto, Canada. Growing up in a musical home environment.
If “del Monte Escalante” is Spanish for Climbing the Mountain, then pianist, vocalist and composer Glenda del Monte Escalante's name could not be more fitting.
Cuban Pianist-singer-songwriter Glenda del E gives Cuban music a fresh new take with her exceptional musicality, her piano and her voice… “This is not only about her original compositions and arrangements, but also about producer Dave Gray’s magic touch, the gift of talented musicians and a family legacy.”“Q-ban Mixology” evolved from Glenda’s trademark, positive and inspiring lyrics and melodies for all ages, pop-soul hooks and funk-jazz influenced arrangements defy generally held notions of what Cuban music is and defines her truly unique, genuine and her real sound.
Her music reflects what she is: A strong academic trained musician transcending frontiers and a role model for future generations.
In 1998, moved with her parents to Toronto, Canada, to continue her high school studies and under scholarship classical training at the ROYAL CONSERVATORY OF MUSIC (TORONTO). Instructed by John Alonso, she has performed as a soloist accompanied by the Counterpoint Community Orchestra conducted by Terry Kowalczuc.
Has performed in various music festivals in Canada, both in the classical music world and popular (Cuban, Latin jazz and world music) events. She graduated from the UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO FACULTY OF MUSIC ,where she studied with DR. James Parker (GRyphon Trio) and holds a Masters Degree in Arts from YORK UNIVERSITY. Glenda continues to work on different projects, trying to unveil all the possibilities of her training and experience.
