Pahua (Mexico)

Pahua, which in Nahuatl means sweet fruit or avocado, is the brainchild of Paulina Sotomayor, a Mexican DJ, producer, percussionist, and vocalist who bridges the gap between alternative electronic music and Latin rhythms. Pahua has accumulated more than 15 million streams on multiple platforms and was handpicked by Spotify to be an ambassador for its EQUAL Global Music Program, which combats gender inequity in the music industry. Pahua is a member of both the US and Latin Recording Academies, and she has released four EPs and one LP on the renowned LA-based label Nacional Records. Don’t miss this rising star of Mexican electronic folk music whose latest music pairs Afro-Latin rhythms, alternative beats, and electronics with powerful lyrics about femininity, nature, and self-discovery.
