A few weeks ago, Betty Confetti invited me over to her studio, where she is currently mixing her first solo album, Camina Sobre el Fuego, which is set to come out this year. The studio space, where Betty has been working over the last few months, is an extra room in her producer’s Buenos Aires apartment. The room is packed with music equipment, and chords from various instruments create a tangle leading to a MacBook, which balances precariously on a record player—a reproduction of Andy Warhol’s Mao Zedong portrait hangs above two empty, overly-comfortable upholstered armchairs.
Betty Confetti by stage, Julia Worley by birth, she hails from Portsmouth, England. Previously of the Buenos Aires-based lady indie-rock band, Las Kellies, Betty struck out solo earlier this year with a new “tropical Cumbia” sound she is making with her music project: Betty Confetti y Su Conjunto Tropical.
