What would you do if you're a band from Amsterdam touring the US and
Mexico and suddenly one of the band members has to fly back home?
Singer Laurien can answer that question: she called for the help of 4
Mexican musicians who she met years ago and finished the tour together
with them. Without extensive rehearsals, the spontaneously established
band suddenly played their first performances at festivals in Cineteca
Nacional and Auditioria Nacional in Mexico City in front of thousands
of enthusiastic visitors.
Coming from diverse musical backgrounds the members of
Snowapple form a remarkable ensemble. Cross cultural and
intercontinental, operating from Amsterdam and Mexico Snowapple
'Wexico' guarantees unique songs.
A genre transcending sound that is described by many as popfolk /
opera / avant-garde-cumbia.
Wexico is the first release of the international Snowapple ensemble
and comes out the 8th of June 2018. The album is recorded in Mexico and Amsterdam,
a collaboration between Mexican and European producers. In addition to
seven own songs, including summer single 'Baby Blue' there is also
room for Colombian traditional 'Pescador' on 'Wexico', performed by
Snowapple in a "Spaghetti Western" version. To celebrate the release,
Snowapple tours Europe, the USA and Mexico.
The music of snowapple has been played multiple times on the BBC Radio.
The band appeared live on TV on progams as Central11 and TV Azteca.
