Mixing tradition and experimentation, singer unÁnima arrives from Puerto Rico as one of the most inspired and driven voices in today's Latin American music scene, ready to give it an unexpected twist through her emotions.
unÁnima's adventure with music begins at a very young age, expressing her love for sounds and rhythms through feeling and dancing. After studying History and Education Policy at Brown University, she spent two years in Havana where the similarities of the local music with that of her native Puerto Rico became more evident to her. Her mission was clear.
In 2008, unÁnima begins collaborating with producers Modestti and Manuel Mendoza Sánchez with whom she establishes the foundations of a sound of her own that is inspired by the traditions of Puerto Rican music to venture into experimenting with technology to give us a unique expression. The result is music characterized by being minimalist and abstract, which gives way to unÁnima's impressive voice that stands out for its warmth. Her released singles include "Se va," "Ni adentro ni afuera" and "Tal y tal."
Among her plans for the near future is the release of an EP “Hunde” in the early months of 2023.
