2019 album also available on Vinyl.
Argentinian vocal trio Fémina are releasing their new album ‘Perlas & Conchas’ and the group have honed their sound around close harmonies, merging soulful, swung hip-hop with traditional Latin folk rhythms, moving seamlessly between Spanish rap and intoxicating melodies. The album was produced by UK musician and producer Quantic, who has spent much of the last decade in Colombia and the first album created in his new Selva Studios space in New York which also features Iggy Pop.
Fémina channels blissed out, harmony-soaked soul music with a purpose. Lyrically poignant with hip hop and Latin influences, 'Perlas & Conchas' is the group's third album proper and unlike previous long players, is primarily an electronic statement.Made up of Clara Miglioli and the two Trucco sisters, Sofia and Clara, the group's roots are in San Martín de los Andes in the Patagonian mountains, where they grew up together sharing a love of '90s hip-hop imported from the US - as well as the occasional Spanish-speaking rapper from Mexico or Spain. They took a musical side-step when Clara Trucco joined, and began drawing more from vocal harmonies and playing live instruments - a process that led them toward their unique style: a combination of soul, hip-hop and traditional Latin American music. The title "Perlas & Conchas" translates to 'Pearls and Shells', a reference to the process through which a pearl is created: a speck of dirt, encased in a shell, turned into an object of wonder. They want to do the same thing with their music: to take dark, difficult situations and turn them into positivity.
