Today in the limelight: Las Brumas, who filled out the FETEBerlin interview.
Please introduce yourself or your band / project – where are you from, what kind of music do you play, what would you like to tell us about yourself?
Hailing from Santiago, Chile, Las Brumas is the project of musician and artist Yanara Zarhi, which leads us easily through dreamy folk/pop and rock, with an energy and power not often seen. Deep themes that explodes with rock-like chords that then break into almost tribal dance rhythms.
Since may 2019 when the artist moved to Berlin, she starts to perform as solo project in multiple venues. After the social explosion that occurred in Chile in October 2019, Las Brumas has been part of the events organized by the Chilean community in Berlin, as a way to make visible and support the causes of the Chilean people.

FETE BERLIN: Next year on 21 June you look back on this year and think:
Las Brumas: I would think how strange it has been to look for new ways to keep in touch with people in these times of pandemic.
Streaming concerts was a way we probably imagined for “the future”, but it’s happening now.
So, I would also think how happy I am to be part of “Fête de la Haus-Musique 2020” for the first time.
FETE BERLIN: What does music and Berlin mean – and what does Berlin with music mean?
Las Brumas: If I can express this in a symbolic way, I would say that:
Berlin is a void in time and space which is always mutating. I read somewhere that “Berlin is never Berlin” and it has been in my mind since. Music, like the people who pass through this city, is always something different. Like every musician who comes to Berlin, inevitably absorbs that “Berlin spirit”, something like a timeless and spaceless magic.
