Sol Okarina

Switzerland | Music


For her project «Analoge Undine», musician Sol Okarina draws inspiration from the myth of the undine, a nymph who protects waters, to explore different pallets that merge organic and synthetic sounds. During her residency, in which she will collaborate with artists from the Swiss experimental scene, she intends to experiment with voice, electronic textures, and real-time audio processing in an analogue format. Through undine, an ancient mythology present in different cultures, Sol assembles a diversity of rhythms (with some Latin American influence) and searches for fluidity in her musical creations.

Sol Okarina [CO/VE] is an artist born in Guayana, where the Orinoco and Caroní rivers meet, in the middle of a jungle and tropical landscape that marked his life and that is reflected in her style. Her music features influences from the Caribbean, with rhythms like champeta, cumbia, calypso and soca presented in a contemporary and universal sound close to pop and permeated with electronics. Her shows search for dance and celebration.
