Maria del Pilar joined the vanguard of the US Latin Alternative music movement and continues to carry the torch with her groundbreaking Spanish/English lyric writing style and genre-bending music. She was just awarded a grant from her native country’s National Council of Culture and the Arts - Government of Chile, to produce her next album “Songs + Canciones II” due September 2017.
In the past year, her song “Miss Funeral” was featured on NPR during Alt Latino’s “Undeniable Strength of a Great Song,” episode. Her single “Ilegal En Estyle,” was named by OC Weekly as one of the decade’s top ten songs about illegal immigration and was included on a list of notable immigration songs by PRI’s The World. Abroad, her single “En el Dancefloor” rose to #6 on Mexico City’s influential radio, Reactor 105.7, countdown after becoming that country’s hit of the summer.
