Como un Águila en lo Alto is the debut album by Latin jazz singer Eleonora Bianchini. Here you will find a perfect combination of originality influenced by folkloric, Latin American, and Jazz music. After graduating from Berklee in 2007, she became a part of Boston’s music scene by doing shows, collaborations with artists such as Oscar Stagnaro, Mark Walker, Jamey Haddad, andDanilo Perez, and networking where she met producer of the album, Barry Marshall.

The album is a cross cultural distillation of Eleonora’s myriad musical passions; the rhythms of the Samba, the Lando, and even Salsa mesh naturally with her lyrics’ innate emotional qualities. Eleonora wrote seven of the songs on the album and also puts her unique vocal stamp on songs by Brazilian greats Ivan Lins, Caetano Veloso, and Djavan.
