The singer-songwriter, guitarist and pianist Maika Makovski is a Mallorcan from Macedonian and Andalusian origins. Born in 1983, she started singing songs from a very young age. After traveling in different countries, she settled in Barcelona where she recorded her first album "Kradiaw" (2005). Her eagerness for knowledge led her to New York where she found herself in the alternative scene until she formed "Kraj so Koferot (2007). But it was not until "Maika Makovski" (2010) that their songs were internationally released thanks to the production of famed John Parish, a close collaborator of PJ Harvey.
It was on the presentation tour of that acclaimed album, next to a band in which Xarim Aresté played guitar, that Maika became popular but since then she had to endure comparisons with the author of "To Bring You My Love". His following albums were "Desaparecer" - soundtrack of a theatrical show of Calixto Bieito - and "Thank You For The Boots", always with songs in English although going from dense and somber atmospheres to brighter forms.
The overall turn in his career has been set with "Chinook Wind", again produced by John Parish, his album less rock. In it, the arrangements of string and metal predominate and are influenced by a trip to Macedonia, his father's homeland, an experience that reflects on the song "Makedonija." Another new theme, "Father", is inspired by Shakespeare and the video of the single "Not In Love" has done David Trueba; Is a fixed plane in which it desmaquilla and works like metaphor of its new sound in which emphasizes Quartet Brossa. The prestigious string group also accompanies you live in a band that complete drums, horn and she to guitars mixing subtlety and intensity.
