    7/1 Pascuala Ilabaca

    Pascuala Ilabaca

    Pascuala Ilabaca y Fauna (Chile)

    @ South Park Hall, South Seattle

    with guest

    All ages, some seating available
    Outside food welcome from local cafe’s 

    Concert held at South Park Hall upstairs

    “Valparaíso-born Pascuala Ilabaca is steeped in the folkloric music of Chile, but she’s not looking to preserve the sounds of the past. Possessing an enchanting, full-bodied voice, she presides over her band Fauna with the authoritative air of a ringmaster, moving between accordion, piano and hand drums. Presented with a keen sense of drama, the music blends the immediacy of garage rock with the seductive grooves of a Latin dance combo. It’s a sound and approach that has earned Ilabaca an avid following across South America and Europe, though she’s still introducing herself to North America.

    Accordion-wielding Chilean songstress Pascuala Ilabaca is a true hidden gem:
    A favourite on the new scene of young Chilean singer-songwriters, her music is rooted in traditional sounds but effortlessly integrates shades of jazz, pop and rock, and influences gathered in such distant places as India or Mexico.
    Accompanied by her formidable band Fauna, her unique stage presence conjures up sweetness and empowerment at the same time, setting her songs alive with both fragility and verve.

    “The joy of life that infects you when you listen to her mellow voice, the fluctuating sound of her accordion and the full-flavoured accompaniment by her band Fauna is simply exhilarating.” – Rythym Passport

    One can be lost but can find home in his inner part – which can mean many things – soul, imagination, mind, intuition, passion. I strongly believe that when being in uncertain times and living an unstable life we can still reach peace with ourselves and be able to find ‘home’ anywhere’ This is what I would like to express with my music – one can travel the whole world but not see anything. It is not where we are going but how much we are able to see and hear things happening around us”. — Hania Rani
    Hania Rani is an award-winning pianist, composer and musician who, was born in Gdańsk and splits her life between Warsaw, where she makes her home, and Berlin where she studied and often works. Her debut album “Esja”, a beguiling collection of solo piano pieces on Gondwana Records was released to international acclaim on April 5 th 2019, earning Rani four prestigious Fryderyk Awards including “Best Debut Album”, “Best Alternative Album” and “Best New Arrangement”, in recognition from the Polish music industries very own Grammys.
