    Fémina is a trio of female Patagonian singer songwriters, whose diverse songs are characterized by show-stopping harmonies and a magical on-stage chemistry reminiscent of Ibeyi mixed with smooth hip hop flow a la Anita Tijoux. Hailing from the tiny mountain town of San Martin de los Andes, Fémina are two sisters and their best childhood friend: Sofia “Toti” Trucco (vocals, guitar, ronroco), Clara “Wewi” Trucco (vocals, percussion) and Clara Miglioli (vocals, guitar). Their live shows are often theatrical in nature, and mix a variety of Latin genres such as cumbia, candombe, rumba, boleros, with international rhythms alike such as reggae and funk. A unique and thrilling combo, the trio has toured internationally in Mexico, Europe, released two albums and are currently working away at their third full length LP.

    From Guadeloupe to Louisiana…to the Mississippi Delta. The missing link of the Blues. When Napoleon reinstated slavery in the Caribbean Island of Guadalupe in 1802 many people were exiled or fled, some of which went to New Orleans. It is from this perspective that Delgres, made up of Pascal Danae, Rafgee and Baptiste Brondy, revisits the blended songs, dances and tears of the long-lost, drifting souls of New-Orleans.
