We are thrilled to announce our second signed artist, the Swiss-Bolivian pianist, composer, arranger and bandleader Demian Coca! With his band Paykuna he will release his second album ‘Rinakaruy’ on SONNA Records.
Rinakaruy means “to go on a journey” in Quechua, one of the many indigenous languages in Bolivia. This album takes you on a journey through seven Bolivian landscapes and captures their essence in sound.
Paykuna’s music is inspired by traditional Bolivian music and is full of rhythmic variation and melody. We are very excited to work with Paykuna and can’t wait to share their magic with you!
