Known for their distinctive mix between surf rock and dream pop, Mundaka has grown to become one of the main players in Peru’s indie music scene. Their debut album, “Sonata Tropical del Ártico” (2016) was named as one of the best releases of the year both by the local and international press.

This was followed by  “Mar Adentro” (Offshore) demonstrating the versatility of the band whilst refreshing their sonic performance. In January they released a mini-documentary in collaboration with Playlizt showing their music career as well as what happens when the lights go out. More recently the band released “El Paso”, first single of their upcoming album which will be released in July.

 

The Folk Pop touch will arrive in Austin thanks to Naïa Valdez. In her short career, Naïa has managed to win a spot as one as one of the most interesting emerging artists. With singles such as “Corre” ,“Julieta”  y “Verano” she surprised Peru’s music scene and was positioned in Spotify’s main playlists such as “Indie Radio”, “Cancionistas: Nuevos Autores” and “Novedades Indie”. Her first full length album is coming out in April.
