Gabriela Lena Frank, born in Berkeley, California, in 1972, is an American composer of Peruvian, Chinese, and Lithuanian Jewish ancestry. Her music is informed by her multicultural background, in particular her Latin American roots. Her compositions have included commissions from the Kronos Quartet, Chanticleer, and the Silkroad Ensemble, of which she is a member. She is also composer-in-residence for the Philadelphia Orchestra, a multiple Grammy nominee, and winner of a Latin Grammy.
