Juana Molina (AR)
Juana Molina is one of the most original, imaginative, and internationally embraced Argentine musicians nowadays. She weaves together propulsive acoustic guitar strumming, clanging percussions, dreamy ambient keyboards, and then spreads her ethereal voice over the whole blend. Self-produced, she creates whirling, hypnotic musical tapestries – multifaceted experimental pop. After the release of her second and 3rd album, she quickly became the darling of the international indie/electronic/folk scene. She was championed by the likes of David Byrne and Will Oldham. The New York Times once stated “Molina doesn’t imitate anyone. She has too much fun just being herself “. “For Fun” is also the title of her latest release in which she revisits songs in a joyful, imaginative, punkoid manner. Juana has toured extensively in the US, Japan, and Europe. Her live performances are a lush sounding as well as a visually compelling experience.
