La Chica – La Loba

December 7

French/Venezuelan composer, singer and pianist La Chica shares an intense and striking new single ‘La Loba’, the title-track from her newly released album. The single  serves as an audio/visual reinterpretation of a Mexican folklore tale of the same name by writer Clarissa Pinkola Estés in her text ‘Run with the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype’. Accompanied by an equally bold and theatrical music video directed by Marion Castéra, the piano-led song tells the story about “recreating life and rekindling a woman’s spirit, fighting against patriarchal forces”. Check out ‘La Loba’ and it’s stunning visual accompaniment here and be sure to give the rest of the album a spin too.
