Angélica Rahe at 3Ten

The message reigns on Angélica Rahe‘s powerful 2020 debut, the regal Reina. It’s crystal clear on Rahe’s latest release, autorretrato. And, in case you missed it and needed further clarification, Rahe gently reminded listeners during her recent KUTX Studio 1A performance: She writes songs that are unabashedly, unashamedly, about femininity (in all humanity), female empowerment, and self-love. And it’s not simply the lyrical oeuvre of each song, but Rahe’s vocals that carry this distinctive power.

Following years spent as a supporting musician for numerous artists, Rahe knew it was time to pursue her own art, leading to a collaboration with Grammy Award-winning producer Adrian Quesada (Black Pumas) for the EP Love Translated, and soon the autobiographical Reina, a rediscovery of not only Rahe’s cultural and musical roots, but a reclamation of herself. All this paved the path to autorretrato, written, engineered and produced by Rahe, reiterating that inner strength within a natural flow of soul, R&B, and Spanish influences throughout.

Angélica Rahe celebrates her new album with a release party tomorrow night, Saturday June 25, at 3Ten, with special guest Torre Blake opening the show. Doors at 7 p.m.
