Pascuala Ilabaca y Fauna
Busco Paraíso (Petit Indie)
The accordionist and singer-songwriter Ilabaca represents a new generation of Chilean musicians, moving beyond Andean folk stereotypes to forge a more global style. This album finds her mixing jazz and rock with traditional South American forms, sung in a voice that is by turns deliciously sweet and fragile, sensuous and languid. A Top of the World in #106.
