Singer Ilse Abril with friends at art centrum La Galeria in San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora, Mexico.

Q:  How does the U.S.-Mexico border influence your life and your work as an artist ?

A: “Art transcends no matter the country. At the end of the day, we are all human and we shape, express and connect with other people through it. A feeling can never be divided by a border.

I have had the fortune and the luck of being able to sing in 3 countries with different musicians and absolutely different concepts and I can say that what I liked the most is that at the moment of the performance everyone’s having fun, they are all transparent and they just want to share a feeling by playing an instrument and it’s all about passion and talent.

Nobody cares about your nationality, gender, color or religion.”
