At one point in the 1990s, the Argentina native canceled her wildly popular comedy show to dedicate herself to music. It’s not an uncommon transition, but over the span of three albums she became the first comedian ever to successfully lose the jokes and become a “serious” musician while keeping her sense of humor.

An alluring construction of curious juxtapositions: organic and electronic, acoustic and distorted, straight time with jazz meters, Spanish and English, poetry and the phonetic qualities of counting. Above all, it’s a playful song, infatuated with the textural and melodic qualities of pure sound and Molina aspires to make sure you’re enjoying it as much as she is.
