Soema Montenegro

Songlines Encounters 2024

Singer, experimental composer and researcher of the Latin American voice, Soema Montenegro mixes the sounds and images of the jungle and mountain landscapes with her original poetry, creating a new and unique voice in the current South American music scene.

Argentine folk/experimental artist Soema Montenegro describes her recent album Círculo Radiante, as an ‘embrace of territory’; an encompassing sonic ode to Latin American sounds, landscapes, and people. Born in the outskirts of Buenos Aires in 1979, she grew up between the countryside and the jungles, sparking a lifelong fascination between the connection of music and place. Known as the ‘shaman-poet’, she channels her voice into chant-like sounds that bestow respect to nature, echoing the traditions of ancestral communities.

This event will last approximately 70 minutes, without an interval.
