The Next Stage Bandwagon Summer Series Presents Rising Star of Mexican Electronic Folk, Pahua, on Saturday, July 20

The Next Stage Bandwagon Summer Series presents the rising star of Mexican electronic folk, Pahua, on Saturday, July 20 at 6:00 pm at Cooper Field, 41 Sand Hill Rd, in Putney.

Pahua is the project of Mexican singer, composer, producer and DJ Paulina Sotomayor; a blend of electronica and folklore that represents a very deep part of its creator: femininity, nature, inner strength and self-discovery.

“Electronic beats mix with Mexican soul in Pahua. Her artistry bridges many divides and presents a danceable, global sound that will make everyone dance,” says Keith Marks, Executive Director of Next Stage Arts. “Pahua is for anyone interested in how music marches forward with electronics, ethnic flavor, and mastery.”

Pau Sotomayor, the multi-talented artist behind Pahua, brings together the traditional and the modern with a unique sound that blends folkloric melodies with lo-fi beats and empowering lyrics. Her debut EP “Ofrenda” quickly gained traction among industry tastemakers, with Rolling Stone Mexico describing it as an “ode to nature and femininity”. Pahua’s latest release, “La Cura”, sees her team up with Spanish singer and composer Gizmo Varillas, resulting in a stunning collaboration that invites listeners to connect with life and happiness. With Pahua, expect nothing but pure magic.

This performance is co-presented with Secret Planet Western Mass.
