PAULA is the duo of Asger Thomsen (DK) and Ignacio Córdoba (SP) melting jazz, electronic music, ambient, musique concréte, meditation and silence. Paula is the female of Pablo and literally means in spanish «small», which is perhaps the best way to describe their sound. Quiet music that forces audiences to listen deeply to fleeting atmospheres. This will be their first european tour in celebration of their debut LP.
