Pascuala Ilabaca is one of the leading exponents of the new prolific scene of young Chilean singer-songwriters. Her music is rooted in traditional sounds but has the ability to incorporate shades from jazz, pop and rock, and influences gathered throughout her life in such distant places as India or Mexico. On stage, she has a strong scenic presence, almost always armed with her accordion; and her voice has the power to sweeten the rhythms and melodies of the band that accompanies her: Fauna.
