While Pascuala Ilabaca y Fauna certainly takes inspiration from Chilean music of the past, she doesn’t shy away from sounds of the present. Her full-bodied voice carries her band known as” Fauna” across many genres, borrowing from the intensity of garage rock and drum n’ bass, the soothing sounds of North Indian tabla, and the swaggering grooves of Latin dance.
Her music has garnered her a sizeable following in South America and Europe, as well as more recently in the states. She’s played everywhere from intimate clubs, to more prestigious concert halls, to the London jazz festival.
With Special Guest Natalia Bernal – En Diablada
Inspired by the rich cultural legacy and striking natural beauty of her native Chile, Natalia
Bernal’s En Diablada fuses Andean and other South American folkloric traditions with elements of jazz, blues, and rock. En Diablada es a vivid window into Natalia’s mind and her dreams of the Atacama Desert, the people that inhabited the lands thousands of years ago, and how their heritage can teach us to navigate the new paradigms of society. Joining Bernal in the quartet configuration of this project is guitarist/co-composer/musical director Jason Ennis, NYC-based Brazilian bassist Itaiguara Brandão, and multi-grammy-winning drummer Mark Walker.
