About Claudia Valentina Montes

Claudia Valentina Montes is a singer, dancer, and songwriter with a unique sound. Born in LA to Mexican and Jamaican parents, she studied music and dance from a young age in NY. She has performed at venues like Joe's Pub and Carnegie Hall and has toured with bands like Flor de Toloache, Dan Zanes, and Jarana Beat. In 2019, she headlined the closing of the Frida Kahlo exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum, and in 2021, launched her first single, "Fall in Time." Claudia's music is deeply rooted in Mexican traditions and draws from her diverse background. She evokes reflection and takes her audience on an emotional journey, with influences ranging from Chavela Vargas to Joni Mitchell.

About the Hispanic Society Museum and Library

The Hispanic Society of America was founded in 1904 by Archer Milton Huntington (1870-1955) to establish a free, public museum and reference library to study the art and culture of Spain, Portugal, Latin America, and the Philippines. The collections of the Hispanic Society are unparalleled in their scope and quality outside of Spain, addressing nearly every aspect of culture in Spain, as well as a large part of Portugal and Latin America, into the 20th century.
