Maria Usbeck

Growing up in Ecuador, Maria Usbeck was immersed in salsa, merengue, bachata and Andean music, but was more attracted to German and American culture than her own, eventually moving to America at 17 to attend to art school. After five years of fronting new wave outfit Selebrities and writing songs in English, she knew it was time to let the mother tongue speak. That impulse manifests directly in her solo material released under her own name, which reads like an exotic travel diary — music made by a perceptive explorer to tap into the shared core of human expression.
