Santiago On Air: Roberto Parra of Fauna

March 5, 2012

An A - Z mixtape of indie classics that inspired Santiago's favourite club night and promoter

  • Text by Fer Munizaga

Roberto Parra is the man behind Fauna, one of Chile's most forward thinking music promoters when it comes to killer parties with the indie electro crossover vibe with the very best local talent and legendary global names. He's managed to bring over his favourite bands too Santiago, many for their first ever shows in Chile including Crystal Castles, Cut Copy, Hot Chip, Kings Of Convenience and Metronomy.

For Roberto, this A - Z mixtape of classic indie tracks set the inspiration for Fauna. “This is a selection of songs with which I realized that there was a great potential in the new independent music," says Parra. "The only way to invest in music was being attentive to the new generation of artists that come out every day. You have to be present when a new band begins so that you can grow together with their careers, it is the only way that any promoter can enter and compete in such an established market as Chile.”
