Monica Giraldo has announced the November 2, 2018 release of her latest album – Al Oido: The Best of Monica Giraldo, with 14 tracks taken from her four studio albums.


Born in Bogotá, Colombia, Giraldo studied music at Universidad de los Andes and at Berklee College of Music in Boston. Since her return to Colombia, she recorded Muy Cerca in 2005 followed by Todo da Vueltas in 2008, an album that Billboard called "a gem" and which led to her Latin Grammy nomination for Best New Artist. She released Que venga la vida with Polen Records in 2014 and Bajo el mismo cielo in 2017. Al Oido has tracks from all four albums.

Mónica Giraldo is a woman walking two paths. The first one is taking her deeper and deeper into the heart of Colombian music, surrounded by the power of her native land’s traditional rhythms. The other one leads her out and away, following melodies and harmonies from the world. Giraldo's music is a subtle and elegant mix of acoustic pop and folk set to the colorful rhythms of the Caribbean and Latin America. This new release features her very best work.

"A guitar and a voice, that’s how the music came to my life and that’s the way it has continued. Al Oido – The Best of Monica Giraldo is the sound map that I have been building through my songs. For me, music has been a place of shelter and a meeting point with the world around me."
