“Raleigh’s Azul Zapata is no stranger to the North Carolina music scene. She first broke onto the scene with electropop duo Fluorescence, but her most recent work as AZUL is her most impressive output to date. Blending her Latin roots with elements of pop, jazz, blues and soul, Zapata gives not only a unique perspective on modern music, but also one with undeniable staying power.” – Grant Golden, CLTure
