Gaby Moreno
Gaby Moreno, the new premiere platform for high-quality livestreamed concerts founded by Tanja Dorn’s Dorn Music and producer Bernhard Fleischer’s BFMI in April 2020, will feature a performance by Los Angeles-based Guatemalan singer-songwriter Gaby Moreno at 11am PT on June 14.

The concert (with no live audience) will be broadcast live from Gravity Media’s Van Nuys Production Center in Los Angeles. Paul Fenkart of BFMI USA will direct reaches audiences worldwide, and this broadcast will be the first that can be viewed in China. Ticket holders will receive an access key that allows them to watch the concert during the live broadcast as well as on-demand on for one week following the performance. Ticket sales help secure musicians’ fees.

 “I’m very much looking forward to performing this unique and special concert during these unprecedented times,” says Moreno in a press release. “My greatest joy in life is singing and I’m thrilled to be able to share my music with you all through a wonderful platform like QChamber, bringing us all together. I will be donating to the organization Color of Change that is working to fight racial injustice, and I would ask you to please consider doing the same.”

Dorn founded with BFMI out of a desire to connect high caliber artists with audiences in a meaningful way.

“Through this platform, artists are able to have a top-quality performance experience while audiences are able to enjoy an incredible concert from the comfort and safety of their own homes,” says Dorn. “We are very proud to present our first concert outside the classical music genre, with Gaby Moreno.”

Since moving to Los Angeles from her native Guatemala, Moreno has released five albums. Last year’s ¡Spangled! is a collaboration with American musician, songwriter, and arranger, Van Dyke Parks. The album celebrates “the migration of song across the Americas” and spans more than a century, including a bolero from Panama, a bossa nova from Brazil, and an elegiac ballad from the Southwest United States – Ry Cooder, John Hiatt, and Jim Dickinson’s “Across the Borderline” performed with Cooder and Jackson Browne. The album also includes one of Moreno’s own songs, “Sombrerón (Revisted),” as well as “The Immigrants” by Trinidadian songwriter David Rudder.

More recently, she has appeared on Live From Here (hosted by five-time Grammy winner/MacArthur Genius, Chris Thile).
