Paulina Rubio will be getting jazzed in New Orleans next April.
The 40-year-old Mexican singer will perform at the 2012 New Orleans Jazz Fest, a popular event that features live performances from artists from several musical genres.
Started in 1970, the festival takes place on two consecutive weekends next year–April 27-29 and May 3-6. Rubio—who recently released her tenth studio album, Brava!—will perform on the second weekend, along with big names acts like the Eagles, Bonnie Raitt and Florence + the Machine.
Adding Rubio, who has sold more than 20 million albums worldwide, to the lineup is part of an effort by event organizers to entice a bigger Latino audience.
Along with Pau Pau, next year’s schedule will include performances by several popular Latino acts, including Rodrigo y Gabriela and The Texas Tornadoes featuring Flaco Jimenez.
