Un Dia, I Will Understand Juana Molina

Friday, October 03, 2008

I don't know much about the history (or sound) of Argentinian music...that said I'm sure some of you want to put the justice to my ears. Juana Molina is rolling out her entirely home recorded 5th album, Un Dia, and honestly it's totally nuts. Now traditionally she sounds like a soft vocalist very near and dear to the Bossa Nova style. No I don't think it all sounds the same, I'm just saying it's similar (and the countries touch eachother). She sings beautifully on her previous albums. Un Dia is still her, but a new-er breed, just look at that picture, it's creepishly jawesome. You can get this new album next week! Give it a few listens, it'll be different everytime!

Thanks .. there s this whole wealth of Mexican Central -South American or easer said "latin américa diaspora" music that is all but under the radar ..

It is nice to see some poking above the surface .....

Her Wikipedia has a nice summery "Juana Molina (born in 1962 in Buenos Aires, Argentina) is a singer-songwriter and an actress.

Following the military coup in Argentina of 1976, Molina's family fled the country and lived in exile in Paris for six years. She grew up in a musical environment and her tango-singing father taught her guitar from the age of five.

Juana Molina started her career in 1988 as a comedic television actress in Argentina on the show La Noticia Rebelde. She later starred in Juana y sus hermanas, a hit sketch show across the Spanish-speaking world, for which she remains better known in Latin America."
