As a consequence of the widespread global situation with Corona virus/COVID-19, Juana Molina has sadly been forced to cancel her Spring tour. Nonetheless, we are very happy to announce that the concert at ALICE has been moved to a new date – from April 16 till December 11. All purchased tickets can be used for the new date.
When acclaimed Argentinian musician and alternative icon Juana Molina arrived with her band on the site of the Roskilde festival in July 2018, they found that the airline had misplaced their backline, all they had with them was Juana’s guitar. They decided to go ahead and play a set anyway, using the guitar and instruments which were onstage, i.e. a keyboard and a drum kit. They played a wild set of improvised versions of Juana’s songs, and the fans were delighted to witness such a special show. Since that day, Juana and her bandmates took to including a punkish version of “Paraguaya” in their live sets.
Now, several months later, Juana Molina releases the EP “Forfun” on Crammed Discs. An EP directly inspired by the playful and unpredictable mood of the Roskilde Festival show. We’re delighted that Juana Molina and her band will follow up the release with a European tour. A tour which will also bring them to ALICE where they will play an intimate show. Without doubt, Molina is one of the most important alternative musicians in Argentina. And with her sophisticated blend of folk, art pop and electronica, she has created her very own style. Her latest album, “Halo”, has been labelled a highlight of her career by several journalists. And The Sunday Times called it: “An album veering on genius”.
