Juana Molina

.

I’m pleased to introduce our blog readers to Juana Molina.  She’s a solo musician who works extensively with looping to create much more than you might think from a solo musician.  She captures a phrase and loops it, then plays over top, adding additional phrases as her music progresses.  While the use of looping is clearly technology based, her music is vastly more organic and natural sounding.  Juana Molina is from Argentina, and her music is a difficult to categorize blend of new age and world sounds.
