Las Lloronas is a Brussels-based trio that merges world music with slam poetry. Three voices assert their intimate lyrics, they soak in harmonies and melancholic melodies. In their performance, Las Lloronas share a moment of powerful vulnerability, on the verge of lament, daydream and battle cry.
Sura Solomon (BE/USA), Amber in ‘t Veld (ES/NL) and Marieke Werner (DE) meet years earlier, sharing a passion for sociology, activism and art. This passion now translates and transforms into music. Reflecting their experiences and origins, their work merges world music and slam, giving birth to multilingual and intimate feminist poetry. Harmonies happen effortlessly, provoking a musical crush between the three voices. This is what drives them to pursue the project professionally.
Inspired by musicians such as Lhasa de Sela, Noname and Ibeyi, Las Lloronas assert their intimate lyrics, they soak in harmonies and melancholic melodies. Three voices travel through Spanish folk and Hip- Hop rhythms, Klezmer sonorities and Blues, somewhere on the edge between lament, daydream and battle cry. In their performance, voices, a clarinet, a guitar, an accordion and a ukulele share a moment of powerful vulnerability.
