It's time to meet one of the Netherlands most talented artists. He goes by the name of Juan Calderon and has recently released his debut EP JARA.

The EP is an ode to folk singer, Victor Jara, and sees Calderon mix this inspiration with influences from the likes of, James Blake, Amy Winehouse and N*E*R*D to create something that is completely his own. The whole EP is produced by Calderon and he packs a lot into the five tracks showcasing his talent throughout and allowing the listener to hear his ability to merge eclectic sounds with a traditional undertone.
Hopefully this is the first in many great offerings from Calderon and be sure to be on the lookout for any new material dropping from the young singer. For now you can stream JARA above or purchase the EP here.
