Pascuala Ilabaca Y Fauna
Accordion-wielding Pascuala Ilabaca is one of the leading performers and singer-songwriters in Chile’s musical scene. Her sound is rooted in traditional Chilean sounds but also incorporates jazz, pop and rock, and other musical influences gathered throughout her life in such distant places from home as India and Mexico. On stage, she has a strong visual presence, armed with her accordion and a voice that has the power to sweeten the rhythms and melodies of the band that accompanies her. Ilabaca is a two-time Independent Music Awards winner, which honors music by established and emerging talent worldwide. Pascuala Ilabaca y Fauna tours Europe extensively and will be hitting the road in September for their first US tour.
Taking cues from Violeta Parra and Janis Joplin, her unique stage presence conjures up both sweetness and empowerment, with song lyrics focused on distinctly positive messages of feminism, anti-violence, and cultural heritage. Her formidable band La Fauna is made up of accordion, keyboard, sax / clarinet, percussion, bass and guitar.
