“Five Minutes With” Toronto Recording Artist Ceréna

Born to Colombian parents in Toronto, Turtle Island, Ceréna (she/they) is a recording artist and one of the co-founders of Club Quarantine, the original queer zoom party that began during lockdown and has been featured on PAPER, The Cut, The New York Times & VICE. Being in the music industry since 2012, most of Ceréna’s career was one where she pretended to be someone she’s not, pressured by the standards of an industry that relies more on money and conformity rather than artistic integrity and authenticity. After becoming fully independent, Ceréna began immersing herself in the queer community which gave her the power to be her authentic self. Her upcoming debut album resurrection will be the reclamation of herself and will elaborate on themes of freedom, community, unity and love. It is out on June 25th.
