Ilan Chester is an Israeli-Venezuelan singer, songwriter and musician. Ilan grew up listening to Jewish and classical music as a child and was later influenced by Venezuelan folk, Afro-Caribbean, British rock and American R&B -- all of which would play an important part in his own songwriting. His fascination with ancestral texts found in the Vedic literature from India inspired him to compose music over mantras and devotional songs (Bhakti-Yoga), resulting in a unique and powerful combination. He received a Latin Grammy for Best Folk Album for 2010's Tesoros de la Música Venezolana
, and in 2017, the Latin Grammy Academy awarded him a Lifetime Achievement Award as recognition of his musical excellence. Canciones y Cuentos
is presented in Spanish at Boca Black Box in Boca Raton.
