Angelica Artifex

Urban Pop/ World Music, mixed organically with spices from hasty cities with blends of flavors and sounds from the tropics.                                                                        
Growing up in a multicultural family in Sweden meant that it was important for my parents that I explored my heritage. My first destination at 6 months old was Havana, Cuba. From there and any other places in the world I have come to learn the meaning of diversity, flavors, smells, history and sound. Knowledge of culture has influenced my work and my way of thinking. Life itself is fascinating and that is what portrays in my music.
