Arca is one of the world’s most transformative musical talents. Since breaking through with her 2012 EPs ‘Stretch 1’ and ‘Stretch 2’, she’s created an unprecedented body of work drawing from club music, experimental noise, and the ballad tradition of her native Venezuela, while reaching beyond music to encompass performance, visual art, and technology. As a collaborator with Björk, Kanye West, and FKA twigs, she’s stretched contemporary music’ sonic boundaries and helped set the sound of her era. As a Latinx nonbinary trans woman, she’s redefined the role of the diva for a new generation. At Sónar Lisboa 2022 she’ll be performing by Night, with new music and a live show, guaranteed to change things up once again.
