Salt Cathedral is Juli & Nico - a New York-based duo. Originally from Colombia, with a jazz background, and heavily influenced by global sounds and rhythms, they create catchy eclectic pop music with a unique vocal approach to melody.
Salt Cathedral will release their debut record, Big Waves / Small Waves in 2018. Inspired by their Colombian upbringing and Brooklyn’s Caribbean scene, the album is steeped in island sound. In contrast to their Oom Velt EP, which dealt with individuality of experience, this album speaks to our common collective experiences.
On stage, the band combines live instrumentals, electronics, and choreographed lighting to create an immersive environment of “crackling energy” (Pitchfork).
