Traveling. It leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.
— Ibn Battuta

Eli del Puerto was born in a port town in Georgia.  Her artistic name appeared while living in Veracruz, México, El Puerto. She arrives to ports around the world singing  and dancing. Traveling has been an unlimited source of inspiration throughout the years. 


Eli is now based in Albuquerque where she sings, teaches, and paints as she sits in the dusty valley of an ancient seabed where dinosaurs once swam.
