Simply stated, The EVT Band is an all original, latin alternative band, fronted by Ivette Torres-Albano (EV), a Cuban American singer/songwriter and producer who was born and raised in New York. The music has been called eclectic, a fusion of many genres moving through latin, rock, reggae, jazzy ballads, country and so on. EV's voice has been described as clear and smooth while the rhythm section firm yet free enough to dance around the vocals.
Ciauda's musical genre is a melting pot of world music tinged with streaks of modern pop and a sprinkling of Mediterranean folk. The lyrics are journeys and containers, soaked in sentiments, from a love of the Earth to traditions and metaphors of life's experiences. Winners of a number of awards and prizes including the "Atellana Festival" in 2007 in Caserta and the "Festival della Canzone Italiana" in 2010 in New York, the band published its first Ep, "Unnè" in 2008 and the follow-up "Unnè 2" in 2011. Ciauda is currently preparing for the release of "Unnè 3" to conclude the trilogy.
