Calma Carmona is a pint-sized Latin soul singer with a powerful voice.
Carmona began her singing career in 2007 at the Café Seda in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. Her diverse musical influences—which reflect her Afro-Latino roots—include Thelonius Monk, Santana, PJ Harvey and La Lupa. Drawing from the sounds of soul, bolero, Latin music, cumbia and Motown, Carmona’s compelling musical style is all at once sweet, sensuous and feisty.
In 2013, Carmona’s debut EP, There’s No Other Girl, was featured on NBCUniversal’s bilingual cable network NBC Universo. For her upcoming album, Girl on a Bridge, Carmona is working with two GRAMMY Award winners—producer Frequency and audio engineer Seth Atkins Horan. As a testament to Carmona’s talent and charisma, Beyoncé chose the young singer to open her show in San Juan as part of the 2013-2014 Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.
