After reporting some amazing modern music from Venezuela it's time for the neighbouring country Colombia to step into the spotlight.

Cream of the crop is Lucrecia. Her sound is primarily based on strong melodies layered with vocals, random noise and shades of electronica and pop. She uses software for the electronic component of her music, which is balanced by the use of melodica, guitar, flute and harmonica, creating a nice balance of acoustic and digital.

On her newest EP she gives more space to acoustic instruments en becomes more personal. Best song on this release is "Counting Backwards". You can download the complete EP for free (!) at

Lucrecia already released an album called "Acerca" available on Mil Records (Mexico).
