Mariana Martín Capriles aka MPeach, is a Venezuelan multi-disciplinary artist living in Brooklyn, NY. As a vocalist, producer, DJ, and audiovisual artist, the Caracas native intertwines electronic sounds and strong bass with rhythms rooted in traditional Venezuelan music. Having built a body of work rooted in exploring the sounds of Latin America, the Caribbean, and Africa -- and the possibilities of these sounds in new electronic territories -- MPeach lives in the liminal borderlands of honoring traditional folk sounds rooted in rich cultural histories and the future of Latin American sound, driven by chasing rhythms that create joy and make people dance. By engaging Venezuelan folk music as a tradition that remains alive and evolving, she challenges stagnant notions of authenticity by creating work that is responsive to the forces that shape its creators, listeners, and dancers, using electronic music as one more vehicle for the preservation of folk tradition in the collective memory.

 

She has toured across the United States, Latin America, and Europe. She has released music with Dutty Artz, Abstractor, NWLA, Interscope, Majia, On the Corner, and her imprint PEACHTOWN. MPeach's music is in several official motion picture soundtracks, including "Skate Kitchen" by award-winning director Crystal Moselle. She has collaborated with producers such as DJ Baba, Cardopusher / Safety Trance, DJ Yirvin, and Uproot Andy.

 

She's participated in installations at BRIC Contemporary Art (Brooklyn, NY), Abrons Center with the Joshua Light Show Residency, One Art Space (NYC), Centro Cultural Chacao, and "Open Call' at The Shed (NY).

 

In her work as a Motion Graphics Artist and Video Editor, she has worked with a diverse set of clients -- from mayor agencies like McCann and 72andSunny, smaller creative studio like Picture Farm and Ataboy, and directly with clients and foundations -- to create visual work for a diverse portfolio of brands including Verizon, CocaCola, Microsoft, Mastercard, Boiler Room, VH1, Spin, Smirnoff, Laura Mercier, NARS, Revlon, and Academy Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o.
