En Casa: Pickúa

Friday, June 21, 10 am

Chilean singer-songwriter Pickúa has collaborated with important theater and musical artists. She has produced albums, written research articles, and directed theater productions. Her musical language links ancient and contemporary styles, mixing folklore, popular music, and pop culture. Pickúa's next album is Hijas de Pepe (2024), an album of twenty Chilean cuecas made in collaboration with Andrea Martínez. 

From Santiago, Pickúa and her band (including Sebastián Aravena, Guillermo Muñoz, Osvaldo Sazo, and Bayron Espinoza) sent us this version of “Mi culpa,” a traditional bolero re-invented in a mixture with bachata, electronic instruments, and Latin percussions. It is a song that cries out for freedom in the face of the emotion of guilt, and an invitation to communicate your feelings before death arrives.
