Ana Patan (indie rock, singer songwriter)
With a melting-pot type of music luggage, the German based in Sweden grew up in Romania, a nest of Romantic influence, with a rich folkloric expression of its own, in the Slavic region at the crossroads of Western Europe and the Orient. She has been making music in many corners of the world, from the ancient republic of Venice or the dark Scandinavian woods, to New York, Istanbul and Hong Kong. And all these experiences have matured and developed into her very own style, extrovert, congenial and familiar, still difficult to place.
One can’t be left unmoved by Ana’s smooth sultry voice, guitar playing abilities, but most of all, her impacting genuineness. Organic and intellectual, funny and relaxed, sometimes critical, with surprising estethics and energy, her music is an optimistic hymn to everyday life, a mirror held to individual and humanity with all faults and splendour.
