Il Abanico originated as a duo in Bogotá, Colombia, in 2010 before moving north and ultimately landing in Brooklyn in 2012. Centered around the manipulated vocals of Juliana Ronderos and guitar melodies of Nicolás Losada, this 5-piece band draws on a diverse world of influences to create wholly original, experimental pop music. Performing here, on BTR Live Studio, Il Abanico shares a few new songs and talks about the differences between the Colombian and American music scenes.
Featured song: “Take Me To The Sea”
A free digital download of Crossing Colors EP is available through Il Abanico’s Bandcamp page.
