Mabe Fratti

Originally from Guatemala, Mabe is now based in Mexico city. She uses cello, voice and synthesizers to present sound in the form of installation, composition & free improvisation. Mabe’s music transcends limitations: through a hypnotic and captivating performance, she fuses contemporary components such as synthesizers, arrays of electronic effects and pedals with influences that travel from Gregorian chants to Sephardi music, ingredients for a potent sonic ritual that create a profound emotional impact.

Her 2019 debut LP, Pies Sobre la Tierra, introduced the world to Fratti’s lush & hypnotic cello compositions. Her recent album Será que ahora podremos entendernos, earning acclaim from Pitchfork, NPR, BBC, The Wire, The Guardian, XLR8R, Bandcamp, and more, finds a space for lyrical invention, elevating her otherworldly creations to new heights. The album’s title translates as Will we be able to understand each other now? Mabe’s Cello is still a prominent aspect of the work here but it comes draped in vintage synths, guitars, field recordings, and gentle drone. Mabe’s recent EP with friend and collaborator Conceptión Huerta, Estática, earned critical acclaim from The Quietus, The Wire and Atwood Mag, and further demonstrated Mabe’s breadth of musical exploration and experimentation.’
