La Chica is Sophie Fustec, a Franco-Venezuelan who grew up in both the Parisian neighbourhood of Belleville and Latin America.
Her debut album, Cambio, was released in February and this first venture into Latin-pop confirms the talent we saw in her when she was still part of the group 3SomeSister. As a solo artist, La Chica’s bi-cultural background comes coasting through her music, proving that she’s no novice in this game: her melodic agility and her technical expertise come from her 12 years of music school and her sound engineer studies. Thanks to her many live performances with artists like Rone, -M-, Yael Naim, Pauline Croze and Juana Molina, she’s perfectly comfortable on stage. Her music comes from her heritage, but its sublime musical collage looks to the future.
