Las Lloronas

When World music meets Slam poetry

After touring across Europe, the Brussels-based trio returns to the Belgian capital with their luggage full of songs. Their writing has matured – it is poetic, sharp but always to the point, taking a firm stance in a constantly changing society. The vocal harmonies for which they are renowned are still very present, inviting us to drop our guard, to let our tears roll – tears of joy, of sorrow, or inexplicable relief. Las Lloronas once again transport us into a world where we can be our quirky, vulnerable and plural selves.

 Sura Solomon (BE/USA), Amber in ‘t Veld (ES/NL) and Marieke Werner (DE) started out as street-musicians, united around their passion for sociology, activism and art. Their debut album « Soaked », driven by their intimate, multilingual feminist poetry, touched thousands of listeners. Now they’re back with « Out of the Blue », a second album that’s stronger, more daring and extremely moving.

 Las Lloronas’ performance is often described as highly original, yet their music also has a timeless quality: it goes under your skin, it is emotionally raw and ravishing, something to be found in many folk traditions, such as Klezmer, Flamenco or Blues. Still accompanied by guitar, ukulele, accordion and clarinet, they create a unique musical universe far from genre codes. Inspired by musicians such as Lhasa de Sela, Akua Naru, Giora Feidman, Chavela Vargas and Rodrigo Amarante, they create a delicious polyphonic symbiosis that can only be described as « Las Lloronas ».

  • Marieke Werner – clarinet, vocals (DE)




Las Lloronas is a Brussels-based trio that merges world music with slam poetry. Three voices assert their intimate lyrics, they soak in harmonies and melancholic melodies. In their performance, Las Lloronas share a moment of powerful vulnerability, on the verge of lament, daydream and battle cry.

Sura Solomon (BE/USA), Amber in ‘t Veld (ES/NL) and Marieke Werner (DE) meet years earlier, sharing a passion for sociology, activism and art. This passion now translates and transforms into music. Reflecting their experiences and origins, their work merges world music and slam, giving birth to multilingual and intimate feminist poetry. Harmonies happen effortlessly, provoking a musical crush between the three voices. This is what drives them to pursue the project professionally.

INDYROCK Magazine (ES)

Review of “Run” in the Spanish magazine Indyrock.


“Backed by a stylish video, superbly directed by Maria Lorente Becerra, this new single questions the passage of time with a fine dose of poetry and a beating chorus.”


“For this second album Out of the Blue, Las Lloronas have embarked on an exciting audiovisual collaboration. In this project, Maria has created an intimate documentary that explores the behind-the-scenes lives of these artists as they composed the songs for the album, bringing to life the title Inside Las Lloronas.”


“Run” stands out for its originality, its absurd and endearing approach, and its singular aesthetic that evokes the essence of a short film.


The clip for ‘Run’ was premiered on the website of Spanish magazine Mondo Sonoro.

Brigitte Mahaux

“Accompanied by accordion, guitar, ukulele and clarinet, their voices fuse intimate lyrics with melancholic harmonies, for a simple, beautiful, strong and touching result. Voices impregnated, gorged with their XXIst century, with their fears, their sorrows and their joys… “

Klara (BE)

“In their music, voices, clarinet, guitar, accordion and ukulele form a powerful vulnerability. The ability to express pure and deep emotions is central. This results in pure, raw music that speaks from the gut.”

Larsen (BE)

« Un projet frais et original qui suscite la réflexion. »


« Het is een afwisselend, breekbaar doch krachtig en moedig album geworden vol oprechte, voelbare emoties, maar ook één van een intense, overrompelende pracht. »


« Leur musique est hybride et défie tous les classements, sauf ceux du rêve et de l’enchantement. « 



Sura Solomon was the guest of the “Courrier Recommandé” on BX1.


« Nu, dat is gigantisch: waar je op de ep nog een trio hoorde, dat een beetje naar een eigen plaatsje op zoek was, hoor je nu een ensemble dat behoorlijk zelfverzekerd aan het werk is en dat totaal niet bang is door te dringen tot de kern van de emoties waar ze over zingen « 

L'avenir (BE)

« Elles sont trois, jeunes et enthousiastes. De là à passer de la rue au studio, elles n’y pensaient pas trop »


Amber in ‘t Veld had the opportunity to talk about the release of SOAKED on Klara “Music Matters”.
