Selected Reviews and Comments

Berlin based, Peruvian artist Sofia Kourtesis has shared her new single 'Madres' which is out now on Ninja Tune. The single marks Kourtesis' first new music since the release of 'EstaciĆ³n Esperanza (feat. Manu Chao)' in January 2022.

Overflowing with open-hearted technicolour, 'Madres' finds Sofia further honing her own lighter-than-air vocals. As she continues building a sound that she has made so distinctly her own, new and irresistible technical and vocal flourishes rear their head.

Speaking of the track Sofia says:

"This song is about my mother, her mother, my sisters who are mothers, my brothers who are mothers, and all the LGBTQIA+ members who are mothers to their communities. Madres has no gender. Madres loves to protect the ones you love.

If you get lost, follow your mother's voice, they will always bring you back.
I also want to dedicate this song to Peter Vajkoczy, a brain surgeon who has become the hope of my own mother! He gives people hope by daring the most complicated surgeries in the world; he believes in miracles, love, and the strength to protect loved ones.

Life goes by quickly. Life is fragile."
