Chilean pop singer Javiera Mena has been recording and performing music since 2001, first as indie pop duo, Prissa, and then as a collaborator with friend and Chilean singer-songwriter, Gepe. Mena cites Brazilian chantuese Xúxa and Mexico’s pop icon Daniela Romo as influences, yet it’s her fascination with an AM monophonic sound she grew up listening to as a child that guides her acoustic-synth driven pop from her 2006 debut, Esquemas Juveniles (Virgin Argentina). “Yo No Te Pido La Luna” is a tune off of that record and a cover of Daniela Romo’s 1984 pop hit which was a #1 hit in Chile and once again became a hit for Mena a few years ago. Mena is currently recording a follow up to Esquemas Juveniles in Mexico, Argentina, and Chile and due out later this year.
