Soltera is the experimental dance music project of Colombian American artist Tania Ordoñez. Ordoñez grew up in the San Fernando Valley, home to many backyard shows where all of her greatest music inspirations stem from. In 2018, Ordoñez started producing music on her own with borrowed synthesizers and drum machines from friends. Her music is heavily influenced by techno and house melding with punk amongst many other genres. Her intention with Soltera is to create a cathartic experience where people can come together to dance and let go. Ordoñez is also a filmmaker, DJ and co-runs the underground LA based collective Casa/Teca.
Maral’s sonic palette incorporates a collage of Iranian Classical & Folk samples and explores genres of experimental electronic production such as noise, punk/post-punk, and dub. Maral is set to release this fall her follow up to her critically acclaimed debut record "Push" (Leaving Records 2020). She has collaborated with artists such as Lee "Scratch" Perry, Panda Bear, Penny Rimbaud of Crass, Anika and more.
