Passiflora is a gypsy-folk band from Costa Rica, with mostly female members. I bumped into them while searching for music from Costa Rica for a weekly radio column (on the might KX Radio, every wednesday, 8.15 am Amsterdam time). As you know, the Dutch football team plays Costa Rica next Saturday, that’s what triggered my search.
Passiflora sing in Spanish, English and, yes, French. Coeur Privé is a quiet, multi-voiced track that’s in the vein of Emily Loizeau – the English tracks have a more American, almost poppy feel. Read a profile on the band HERE. Rather odd interview HERE. Listen to another version of the French track HERE.
