Fémina Announce London Show; Reveal 13 Songs They’re Digging Right Now24 May, 2019
With the sounds of their latest album Perlas & Conchas still fresh in our ears, we’re hugely excited that Fémina have just announced a London date this June. We’ve been big fans of the Argentine trio for a while [telling their story in detail back in 2017] and have been loving the electronic vibrations they’ve added to their latest Quantic-produced album, augmenting their oft-rapped lyrics, peripatetic soul grooves and a song craft clearly derived from folk music and a sense of communal music-making.
To celebrate the announcement we thought we’d ask the group to pick out some of their favourite songs of the moment. Below you’ll find just that, 13 tracks that reveal the global sounds getting the group hyped at the moment, and clearly showing their love for hip-hop and global soul-pop and expansive music of all stripes.
Tickets to Fémina’s London show on Thursday 20th June available from movimientos.org.uk/Femina2019
