Colombian / Italian Artist and songwriter Desta French is one of the most exciting voices emerging from London’s Latin music scene. Her broad range of influences span from salsa, cumbia, hip-hop, lo-fi, grime, and Latin pop music, expressed through her native London Camden attitude.
Desta was invited to perform her debut track “Shame” on YouTube’s COLORS show back in 2016, a video that has so far amassed nearly two million views. Since then, Desta has been on a very personal journey finding ways to incorporate her Colombian identity to the front of the
conversation, producing tracks in both Spanish and English. Songs like “Guajira” and “Into the Wave”, have been laying down the blueprint for a new generation of British Latinx creatives to deliver their own sound—unique from the internationally-recognised diaspora in the
United States and South America.
