"Pehuenche is the musical project of the Mexican singer Rafael Mesa, who, in his work, goes through a process of reflection; a troubadour who unleashes nostalgia and melancholy upon recognizing himself as a human being and, at the same time, as a mirror for his listeners.

Pehuenche's live performance envelops a mysterious energy, to take you to an intimate and distant place, creating a ritual of introspection that explores fantasies, fears, and joys, being a chant that emanates radiance and awakens when it is time to be heard.

With more than 10 years in the music industry, Pehuenche incorporates the peculiarity of an androgynous voice into the musical arrangements, a gesture that is perfect for the listener, who manages to place themselves in an unoccupied space, generating an effect of introspection.

Listening to Pehuenche is an experience that can teleport you to a place that is uncommon but familiar, loving, and honest.

He has performed at national festivals and internationally, such as XWS, Tecate Comuna, Machaca 2019, LAMC, Bahidorá, among others.
