"Review in Revista 23"

What is the result of musically crossbreeding a Colombian songstress
with a pristine voice and an argentine gifted for instrumentation: Lulacruza, a pleasant rarity. This hard to classify duo recovers Latinamerican musicality with a modern sense for sumptuous pop... A delicate blend of untamed nature dialoguing with
new technologies. It is a cornerstone in the musical DNA of Latin America.” - Revista 23 (Argentina)

"Review in Proyecto Under"

"Like a nymph from the Andes Mountains, Alejandra hypnotizes you with a voice and lyrics that pay homage to Pacha Mama.
Luis is in charge of creating the décor; an electronically processed primitive forest.” - Proyecto Under (Argentina)

"Santa Fe Review"

“Their eclectic mix of Amazonian flutes, Colombian kalimba, cuatro and womping bass, keyboard, and samples taken from the jungles of South America is ayahuasca for the ears. The combination of indigenous instruments as well as indie and modern electronica sensibilities creates songs that sound as if a shaman, Manu Chao and your favorite dubstep DJ had an orgy.” - Santa Fe Reporter

"SF Bay Guardian Review"

“For Luis Maurette and Alejandra Ortiz, music is a test of the human spirit, of nature, and of ephemeral concepts of reality. Through live drumming and digitally altered hooks, the group manages to create a sound that challenges what we expect from contemporary music.” - SF Bay Guardian

Bio

*as featured on KCRW's Today's Top Tune*

Named “One of the most original new sounds in Latin America.” by ROLLING STONE Argentina, Lulacruza is an electronic folk duo at the junction of hyper-modern and ancient.

Their music weaves together hypnotic female singing, South American instruments, found sound objects, field recordings and electronic manipulation. Colombian Alejandra Ortiz is an extraordinary songbird on the Colombian cuatro, shruti box, and kalimba, together with Argentine Luis Maurette on electronic sampler, percussion, charango and Amazonian flutes.

After producing 4 successful albums, their latest project, ESPERANDO EL TSUNAMI is a music documentary and forthcoming “visual album” made in collaboration with Vincent Moon (considered by the New York Times as “reinventing the music video.”) along with a remix EP of their single “Casa Redonda”.

They have an extremely diverse live repertoire and have played many large international festivals and can do danceable upbeat sets and some that are more spiritual and intimate, great for the main stage but *WOULD BE AN UNFORGETTABLE DAYCASE* as well.
