Juana Molina returns to New York on the occasion of the 15th Anniversary of the Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC). Essentially a one-woman band, Molina's last album, Wed 21, was met with thunderous applause. Composed, performed and produced by Molina in her own studio, the record finds the electronic-folk artist broadening her instrumentation to include electric guitars, bass and drums. The result is a plush sonic landscape that one doesn’t mind transversing over and over again. Her live performances are mesmerizing and find her recreating the songs onstage using loops, effects and a guitar. This afternoon she is sandwiched by Grammy Award-winning Mexican-American band La Santa Cecilia, and renown Argentine sonic rockers Babasónicos, who should mine songs from their 22-year, 11-album career.
