Wohl is a four-piece Mexican instrumental band from Guadalajara with a unique musical language that combines a wide variety of influences ranging from metal and rock to Mexican folk and classical music.
"Wohl appeared from nowhere to release a mature, complex and beautiful album" Picnic Magazine
The band communicates a rich palette of emotions without the need of a spoken narrative, using melodic expression, contrasting dynamics and sonic atmospheres to create a cathartic yet longing statement. ''En Vida'' (In Life) is their first album, consisting of seven original songs. It was released in spring 2017 on all digital platforms.
The band presented the album in the winter of 2017 at the Foro de Arte y Cultura in Guadalajara (The Art and Culture Forum) accompanied by a string quartet (arrangements written by the band itself). Wohl has been an opening act for international bands like LITE (Japan), Sleep Party People (Denmark), Yndi Halda (England), Delta Sleep (U.K), and Hikes (USA).
Since the release of their debut album in 2017 they have been performing in Mexico solidly.
Additionally to SXSW, they are confirmed to showcase at Live at Heart in Sweden in September 2019.
