Juana Molina announces special cine-tour

Juana Molina

Story by Jack Foley

FOLLOWING the recent cancellation of Juana Molina’s tour due to illness, the artist has announced that she will be showcasing her extraordinarily layered and mesmerising performances at various cine-theatres around the country.

This includes two dates in London – at the Greenwich Screening Rooms on Monday, August 21 and Brixton’s Ritzy on Wednesday, August 23.

As Juana herself says of the music: “When I started to write the songs for this record Son, a new element that may have been hidden for a long time appeared; the randomness of the combination of sounds in nature.

“Each bird has a particular singing; nevertheless, this singing is always different. It is not a pattern; it’s a drawing, a sound and a mode, only a few elements that each bird combines in a new way each time.

“In the same way, sometimes I chose to sing a melodic drawing I develop for the song. Verses are alike, but never the same (Rios Seco, No Seas Antipática) other times I chose to sing a repetitive melody.”

You can catch Juana at the following venues:

Aug 17 – Brighton, Duke Of York’s Cinema
Aug 19 – Oxford Phoenix Picture House
Aug 20 – Brecon Greenman Festival
Aug 21 – Greenwich Screening Room
Aug 23 – London Brixton Ritzy
