Panamanian/Cuban artist from Miami makin’ music that makes you wanna shake ya a$$... Growing up as a first-generation American played a huge part in Riela’s distinct sound, whilst also using her Panamanian- Cuban roots as inspiration for most of her music. Taking these experiences and sounds, riela has curated her own unique world that blends elements of reggaeton, 90’s pop, R&B, trap and more. This fusion did not go unnoticed, with Soundcloud selecting Riela as their Artist to Watch (2020), and more recently performing at this years Roots Picnic pre-show alongside Sampha The Great, RMR, Raye and Da Baby. In Riela’s world there is always a melody to be sung and a song to be written.
