Tocatas Mil welcomes one of the most popular and acclaimed groups from the Chilean independent scene. “Seeing Yorka live is a unique experience, something not usually seen from a Chilean band”, said the Pousta site. A pop duo made up of sisters Yorka and Daniela Pastenes, Yorka have made a name for themselves in Chilean music, thanks to their three albums, Humo (2018), Imperio (2015) and Canciones en pijama (2013). They have a distinctive sound, with guitars and a mixture of voices giving a sweet and sincere ring to their songs. Yorka talk of women’s role today, which is why the singers have taken part in discussion groups and workshops, sharing their experiences as women in the world of music. Their powerful sound has led them to share the stage with artists such as Alex Andwandter, Camila Moreno and Anita Tijoux. Their song ‘Y bailamos tanto’ was nominated for song of the year at the 2018 Pulsar Awards, in the same category as artists such as Mon Laferte, Gepe and Camila Gallardo.

  • Their latest album, Humo, was not only acclaimed by specialist media (for example, in Qué Pasa, La Tercera and Ya Magazine), but has also received extensive airtime on radio stations such as Rock&Pop, 40 Principales, Cooperativa, Bío Bío and La Clave.

  • The band’s popularity is reflected in the inclusion of the songs ‘Evidente’ and ‘Rinoceronte’ in the Soltera otra Vez 3 soundtrack (a TV series shown on Canal 13).

  • Both the release of their singles and their last album have been completely successful, with their performance at Matucana 100’s main theater selling out completely. They’ve included sign language by interpreter Macarena Nieto in several of their recent shows.
