A master of mysterious experimental pop, Juana Molina is recognized as one of the most original and visionary artists around. Her career trajectory has been a unique one, from her initial success as a massively popular comedic actress in her native Argentina, to the abandonment of her television career in 1996 and her decision to devote herself to forging her own, inimitable style of music, which gained her worldwide recognition as a critically-lauded recording and touring artist.

Juana Molina grew up in a musical environment. Her father, revered tango singer and composer Horacio Molina, gave her guitar lessons from the age of five. Her mother, actress Chunchuna Villafañe, is a committed music lover who initiated Juana to the secrets of her extensive record collection. Following the military coup of 1976, the Molina family fled the country and lived in exile in Paris for six years. During those formative teenage years in Paris, Juana’s outlook on music was vastly expanded by being exposed to music from around the globe.

In 2019 Juana released ‘ForFun’, a joyful EP with 4 of her songs rearranged and performed in a punkish mood. Juana Molina’s latest release is ‘Segundo (21st Anniversary Edition)’, the remastered reissue of her breakthrough album. She also features on the upcoming album by Congotronics International (the supergroup she formed years ago with Deerhoof, Kasai Allstars, Konono No.1 & others), to be released on April 29, 2022. 

Juana Molina has toured extensively in the US, Europe, and Japan (where’s she’s recently did live trio collaborations with Terry Riley and Jeff Mills). Her concert performances combine live loops, effects created onthe-fly and her deft acoustic guitar playing, creating a lush sounding as well as visually compelling experience.
