Pop Folk Opera Avant-Garde Cumbia – Netherlands/México
Snowapple is a group of multi-instrumentalists / singers from Amsterdam and Mexico. Playing original songs which they describe themselves as pop/folk/opera/avant-garde cumbia.
Drawing on uncommonly contrasting musical backgrounds the members of Snowapple form a remarkable ensemble. Their giddy leapfrogging between genres, combined with the wide range of instruments they play, effectuates an incomparable sound.
The group started as a trio in Amsterdam, but during their travels to Mexico city they one by one picked up an adventurous and diverse group of musicians, adding Mezcal and summer-vibes to the music and expanding Snowapple into an even more explosive, eccentric and theatrical act.
The group is currently touring the US, Mexico and Europe and is working on their 4th studio album. Their music has been played multiple times on BBC Radio and they made several appearances on international TV.
