Pascuala Ilabaca & Fauna

Tue 1 Jul 2014

Accordion-wielding Chilean songstress Pascuala Ilabaca is a true hidden gem: A favourite on the new scene of young Chilean singer-songwriters, her music is rooted in traditional sounds but effortlessly integrates shades of jazz, pop and rock, and influences gathered in such distant places as India or Mexico. Accompanied by her formidable band Fauna, her unique stage presence conjures up sweetness and empowerment at the same time, setting her songs alive with both fragility and verve. Picking up the legacy of the great Violeta Parra (her biggest inspiration) this engaging young artist from the colourful port city of Valparaiso already has a big following at home in Chile (including awards and presidential invitations), and is now striding out confidently to conquer the rest of the world.
