Pilar Vega is a talented Swiss R&B/Neo Soul singer of Caribbean origin. She grew up in Ticino and currently lives in Zurich, but people are starting to talk about her all over Switzerland as well as in Italy, France and Germany. Pilar won’t let you label her as just an R&B singer and songwriter because she is in constant need of extending her boundaries by collaborating with a wide range of talents and genres.
In 2019 for example, she was involved in three very different tracks: Slowdown (with Swiss artist Tatum Rush), Romeo 6 (with Italian rapper Al Denaro), and Redempion (with Zurich EDM star Cella). Each track is carried by Pilar’s uniquely sensual voice and her powerfully feminine lyrics.
In 2020 Pilar released the singles Crème, La Boca (presented at M4Music 2021), Glow (chosen by Swiss radio stations as best song of the month for February 2021) and Manipule (her first French speaking song). In august 2021 she released Yemaya in collaboration with Mercee, another singer based in Zurich. Pilar released recently her first EP called Women which got played by BBC Radio, Global Soul Radio and Couleur 3.
