Arca is the moniker used by the Venezuelan singer-songwriter, producer, and performance artist Alejandra Ghersi. Her music is experimental in the way she constructs rhythms, uses different textural elements, and the subverts the flow of the songs. She blends electronic, dance, and pop elements, bringing reggaeton into the mix, along with spoken words, in order to create a unique sound that can be alternately abrasive, ambient, inscrutable, and mesmerizing. Her music is often stripped down, with clear instrumentation that is typically synth driven, with layered beats and effective use of dissonance and tension. It is also unmistakably cerebral, and yet when she settles into a particular beat, her club music origins come closer to the surface. She did a deep dive on various strands of her music in her 5 album Kick project released between 20220 and 2021.
