  • Description

    Las Lloronas: Sura Solomon, Amber in 't Veld, and Marieke Werner started out as street-musicians, united around their passion for sociology, activism, and art. Their debut album 'Soaked' , driven by their intimate, multilingual feminist poetry, touched thousands of listeners. Now they're back with 'Out of the Blue' , a second album that's stronger, more daring, and extremely moving.

    Las Lloronas' performance is often described as highly original, yet their music also has a timeless quality; it goes under your skin, it is emotionally raw and ravishing, something to be found in many folk traditions, such as Klezmer, Flamenco, or Blues.

    Accompanied by guitar, ukulele, accordion, and clarinet, they create a unique musical universe far from genre codes. Inspired by musicians such as Lhasa de Sela, Akua Naru, Giora Feidman, Chavela Vargas, and Rodrigo Amarante, they create a delicious polyphonic symbiosis that can only be described as, Las Lloronas!

    OUT OF THE BLUE is a passionate, subtle and simple, liquid and musical voyage. A combination of seemingly random sounds and words that create a vibrant sense of being alive, just for a moment, with its lightness & drama, its pleasures and pains, with its soft, ridiculous and confronting twists. Let the ride be fleshy and alive, enjoy!

    Sura Solomon (clarinet, vocals), Amber in 't Veld (vocals, accordion, ukulele), Marieke Werner (vocals, guitar)

    Review quotes on their first album, Soaked:

    "That the meaning is open to discussion is at the heart of what makes Soaked intriguing, whilst their musical virtuosity entertains." - RNR MAGAZINE

    "Soaked is a memorable emotional ride from melancholia to euphoria and back again." - SONGLINES
