Pascuala Ilabaca y Fauna

Global, Musical Group, Piano Accordion

“Ilabaca and Fauna’s music is varied and meaningful”
– Slate the Disco

Accordion-wielding Chilean songstress Pascuala Ilabaca is a true hidden gem: A favorite 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.

In 2017 the group was invited to perform a showcase at WOMEX. They were nominated for Best Artist 2016 in Songlines magazine with Mariza, Seckou Keita and Lura. They won USA’s Independent Music Awards two times (2013 & 2015) for their last two albums. They were also selected in March 2015 as Top of the World in Songlines (Magazine). In 2016 Pascuala received the Pulsar, the highest Chilean music honor, for their last album Rey Loj.

Since they released their first album in 2011, they have had 12 tours in Europe, with more than 150 concerts.

Big venues like the Berliner Philharmoniker have invited the group to perform, along with major festivals such as WasserMusik in Berlin, Germany (2017), Amsterdam Roots in Holland (2017), Etnosur in Spain (2017), Selvámonos Oxapampa in Perú (2016), BAFIM Buenos Aires in Argentina (2015), Womad in the UK (2015), Festival Les Escales in France (2015), La Mar de Músicas Cartagena, Spain (2015), Circulart Medellín in Colombia (2015), Shambala Festival in the UK (2014), London Jazz Festival in the UK (2014), Fusion Festival in Germany (2014), Festival Pirineos Sur in Spain (2014 & 2017), Lollapalooza in Chile (2013), TFF Rudolstadt in Germany (2012), Barnasants in Barcelona, Spain (2012, 2014 & 2017), FIL in Guadalajara, Mexico (2011), and the Festival de Huaso de Olmué in Chile (2010).
