February 2, 2021 SOFIA KOURTESIS – LA PERLA

Sofia Kourtesis follows up last year’s wonderful Sarita Colonia EP, with the beaming, hhym-like lead track off her new Fresia Magdalena, coming in March on Ninja Tune imprint Technicolor. This the first track Kourtesis employs her singing voice, meant to serve as a clearing of the mind, before resuming focus on getting the body moving. She says this of “La Perla” :

“Although I’ve sampled my own voice before, this is the first time I’ve really sung on a track. My dream is to develop a live show and I created ‘La Perla’ with that in mind. ‘La Perla’ is about staring at the sea, It’s the first thing I’ll do when I return to Peru. My dad used to say staring at the sea is like meditation, it clears your head. This song is for him. It’s hard for me to listen to La Perla as it wrote it during a time I lost my dad to leukaemia. This song is for him, descansa en paz papa”
