Sound Adventure

Juana Molina’s music seems to float somewhere above the waters of the Rio de Plata – in a ‘seemingly endless loop of perfect beauty’ (SPEX). What makes the encounter between folk and electronica so captivating is her disarmingly beautiful singing, countered at times by a slightly choppy rhythmn. Choppy like David Byrne, with whom she has performed live, and shimmering like Björk. For WATER MUSIC, singer-songwriter Juana Molina, who gave up her career as Argentina’s most popular comedy star, has compiled an oceanic programme of musical favourites. An adventure – kaleidoscopic music – according to Rolling Stone.
