Pahua: “Vayayó”

By: Jack Anderson

As an internationally-seasoned DJ, host of her own online radio show, and eponymous frontwoman of the globetrotting Mexican group Sotomayor, singer-songwriter Paulina Sotomayor’s artistic appetite seems insatiable. Sotomayor’s latest endeavor was announced a little over a month ago, an electronic-leaning solo project Pahua whose momentum culminates early next year with her debut EP, Ofrenda.

The guiding six originals on Ofrenda offer a sense of empowerment and connections to both folklore and Earth’s natural energy. You’ll pick up on all that pretty quickly while watching Pahua’s just-premiered video for the record’s glistening and pulsating lead single, “Vayayó”!
