At a time when crossover Latin pop artists such as Shakira and Paulina Rubio dominate the airwaves, perhaps alter-Latino ingenue Ely Guerra is the antithesis-- with her mesmerizing blends of acoustic and electronic rock, electronica, traditional Mexican, and pop. Often drawing comparisons to PJ Harvey, Joni Mitchell, and Ani DiFranco, as well as her Spanish-language counterparts Lila Downs and Julieta Venegas, Ely Guerra takes risks and defies the current standard for Latin pop artists with a style completely her own and always baring heart, soul, and substance. Guerra received a 2005 Latin Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Music Album, ?Sweet & Sour, Hot y Spicy,? as well as an MTV Latin American Video Award nomination for Best Female Artist.
