Jazz has a long history, but in Venezuela, it has had an already complicated history, and full of highs and lows, it was always until recent times being considered an exclusive musical genre for men, but it has not been until recently that there have been women singers who have taken the step to sing Jazz and with Venezuelan flavor, serving as ambassadors in that branch for the world.

Biella Da Acosta

She has been linked to the genre since she began her musical career, she is not widely known by a larger audience, but she enjoys a relatively modest commercial success, which does not detract from the fact that her musical performances are considered one of the most outstanding.
