Tinta y Tiempo

Having won seven Latin GRAMMYs with his latest career-defining album Tinta y Tiempo, Jorge Drexler returns to London at the height of his powers. 

Drexler's unique voice, coupled with a knack for lovely melodies and lyrics of unusual depth, gained him international recognition in 2005 when he won an Oscar for “Al Otro Lado Del Río,” a song he wrote for the film The Motorcycle Diaries.

After winning seven Latin GRAMMYs in 2022, the Uruguayan singer songwriter returns with his 14th studio album Tinta y Tiempo. Anchored on his trademark poetic cosmovision and quirky wordplay, Drexler's sweeping, cinematic new album focuses on nature’s invention of love as a survival mechanism. Recorded with special guest artists Ruben Blades, C. Tangana, Noga Erez and Martín Buscaglia, Drexler's voice is both amplified and boosted by exquisite orchestral arrangements, creating a sophisticated songbook capable of evoking vulnerability, hope and wistfulness within a single verse.
