Presented by Rolling Stone Future of Music
Villana Santiago Pacheco, known by her stage name, Villano Antillano, has been one of the pioneers of the queer movement within the urban genre in Puerto Rico. Born in Bayamón, Villano Antillano considers herself a transfemme woman whose approach to music is as challenging and irreverent as it is magnetic and revolutionary. As an audio-visual artist, she is the true owner of the "flow" and the chanting. Her songs go beyond trap and the urban genre, they are revealing lyrics that tell the beauty and also the horror of growing up as a queer person in the Caribbean.
