Juana Molina first achieved fame in early ’90s Argentina with her sketch comedy show Juana Y Sus Hermanas. Despite this success she left acting behind for music, releasing her debut album Rara in 1996. The daughter of actress Chunchuna Villafañe and renowned tango guitarist Horacio Molina, Juana moved to Los Angeles shortly after her career change. There she began to experiment with electronic instruments, incorporating them alongside her voice and guitar. Twenty years and five albums later, Juana has become one of the most celebrated experimental musicians in Argentina with fans both at home and abroad – including David Byrne who, after discovering her second album, invited her to open his American tour.
