Spanish Indie Pop Singer La Bien Querida Arrives Stateside

Latina magazine introduces you to “"The Best Latin Music You Don’t Know" in the June/July issue of the magazine. Many of these up-and-comers are signed to Nacional Records, a label that is constantly giving us something to listen to. I'm especially digging one of their latest revelations, indie pop singer La Bien Querida, who is already well-known in her native Spain.

La Bien Querida is the stage name of Madrid-born Ana Fernández-Villaverde who designs murals of classic Italian palaces in between writing songs. "For me, there is certainly a connection between music and painting," she has said. "A canvas and a song are theme-based with composition, harmony and tonality." Her debut album, Romancero, is a work of art onto itself, fusing flamenco, Arabic sounds, Mexican rancheras, techno and a good dose of romance.
