Don’t Stop the Music

Live, Miami

Argentine DJ and producer Richie Hell is putting his spin on The Living Room’s music scene.



“Miami is a thriving melting pot of artistic expressions,” he said. “To contribute to Faena’s ethos of cultivating a sense of community and cultural richness, we actively engage with the vibrant local music and art scene.”

An avid record collector, Hell absorbs influences from every reach of the musical spectrum. As Faena’s new Music Director, he’ll be handpicking unique voices that enrich the property’s extensive array of talented local artists. The focus is to integrate cultural influences from the city into Faena’s music programming, which celebrates the varied heritage and artistic expressions that define Miami.

“By fostering these connections, Faena becomes a platform for local artists to shine, creating a symbiotic relationship that not only enhances our guest experience but also contributes to the cultural tapestry of the community we are a part of,” he explained.

Music is an integral part of the overall artistic narrative at Faena, adding to its aesthetic richness. “Our approach involves careful collaboration with other art forms within the space, such as visual art installations, architecture, and interior design,” said Hell. “The music is curated to complement these elements, ensuring a cohesive and immersive environment for our guests. Like the soundtrack of a film.”

Every night of the week, The Living Room hosts live performances from a range of Miami-based talent including Mi Dulce Son, American Gypsy, Louis Amanti, The French Horn Collective, Robbie Ellias, and The Usual Suspects. It will also continue to feature talented local DJs as well as thematic nights including Vinyl Tuesdays. “Don’t miss our Saint Valentine’s Day theme party featuring live music and DJs!”

In addition, The Living Room will welcome a late-night resident singer every month who will act as the master of ceremonies for the room alongside special burlesque acts from local star, Elena Lee, and others. “In January, we had the incomparable New York-based Kat Cunning who delighted us with their unique voice and energetic performance,” he noted. In February, Greek singer Kelly Kaltsi will bring her stylish blend of fifties glamour and cinematic music selection. From February 23rd to 25th, Paris-based avant-garde artist, Anna Kova, will host a three-night residency presenting her new album along with R&B classics.

“Striking a balance between familiarity and innovation, our music programming reflects Faena’s commitment to artistic excellence, setting the stage for an unforgettable stay for our guests,” said Hell.
