About Macarena

Amsterdam independent artist Macarena blends neo soul, chill R&B and alternative pop with a touch of latin and thoughtful lyrics. She discovered her love for music while listening to jazz with her dad and developed her writing skills by writing poems during her teen years. As Macarena evolved these skills she released her first track in 2017 called 'Mind' (prod. by RINZ.). Macarena went on to release her debut EP 'Rebirth' in 2018 and followed it up with multiple single releases, of which 'Something New' (prod. by Lady Groove) earned her her first spot on Spotify editorial playlists New Music Friday Latin, Are & Be Latin and Fresh Finds.

Macarena’s goal is to create a lyrical safe space for her listeners, writing music about self-doubt, jealousy and letting go - all tight in with her LGBTQ experiences. Her new release, called ‘Patience’ is out now! Click here to find it on all streaming platforms.

You can reach out to her via Instagram or email at macarenabookings@gmail.com. Pictures shot and edited by Darnell Rozenblad. Producers she has worked with are: Lady Groove, RINZ. and maars.
