Linda’s name is increasingly repeated in the artistic scene of the continent, especially after raising the gilded gramophone to “Producer of the Year” in the Latin Grammy edition of 2018, becoming the first woman to win in this category in the history of the awards.
Originally from Venezuela, Linda has a professional background in music thanks to El Sistema de Orquestas – a music education program with international recognition – and her self-taught impetus in areas such as composition and musical production.
Her development as an interpreter and member of the cultural scene of the region earned her the appointment of Young World Leader by the World Economic Forum in its 2011 program “Global Shapers.”
After a career of years as a trumpeter and soloist, during which she rubbed shoulders with names like Wynton Marsalis and Arturo Sandoval, Linda decides to venture into the path of composer, arranger, and music producer. Taking the reins of her creative process and getting involved in every detail of new projects, Linda’s work stands in her personal experiences as women in music, but also to reflect through her music, current issues that are relevant to the present.”
In 2019, She won her second Grammy Award, as a music producer for the record “Balance,” by Uruguayan pianist and composer Gustavo Casenave.
This year, Linda became a finalist in the Rolex Mentor-Protege program, after an extensive selection process, where she had the honor of sharing ideas with Director and Producer Lin-Manuel Miranda.
With a conceptual album in the oven, Linda Briceño promises to break the schemes of contemporary music.
