Muza is Sol Aravena, an accomplished vocalist and composer who has worked with some of Chile's musical greats and is a driving force in its renaissance, her melancholy tunes reflect life under the dictatorship and her many European influences.
A native of Chile, Sol Aravana is a powerful musical force. With a voice described as "fairy like," "seductive and dreamy," and "entrancing," the strength of her music belies her youth.
Terciopelo is dedicated to Consuelo Velásquez the Mexican composer of the major hits “Bésame Mucho” and “Amar y Vivar.” Muza covers these and other classics such as “Mañana de Carnaval” (“A Day in the Life of a Fool”) beautifully honoring the originals but with her unique and exciting contemporary electronic style. Additionally, Muza performs new and original songs of lost or unrequited love that flow seamlessly with the theme of the album.
The English translation for Terciopelo is Velvet, perfectly describing Muza’s buttery smooth vocals. The incredible musicianship, production and arrangements on this album appeal to adult audiences of all languages.
Muza is one of the leaders of the modern Chilean music renaissance exploding in the wake of the oppressive Pinochet regime
