Pestana and Martin combine their shared passion for hip-hop and jazz with an undeniably present Latin soul and deliver it in an unexpected electronic music disguise. Exhibiting a combination of progressive beats, experimental form, vocal interplay and sophistication of harmony, all tied together with a catchiness that places it firmly in the contemporary music scene. Intaya are delivering listeners with a refreshing and unexpected combination, perhaps something you’ve never heard before. Pestana explains, “I am naturally drawn to polar opposite styles of music, from very minimal composition, low-end frequencies and catchy melodies to complex compositions, arrangement and harmony. I guess these two worlds influences our music, once we merge them it feels less conventional, this makes my ears smile. We also take inspiration from visuals and situations we imagine, sometimes they come from our memories and dreams and others are completely made up or surreal.”
