Amanda Pascali & the Family Immigrant American folk music from Montrose
- 2019 Kerrville New Folk finalist
- “My entire existence was built on resistance… If my father would have never spoken out against the government in his home country, and fled to the United States as a refugee, where he met my mother, also an immigrant in New York, I would have never been born.” – Amanda Pascali
- Internationally acclaimed, bilingual singer/songwriter and 2019 Kerrville New Folk finalist, Amanda Pascali was born in Queens, New York and is based in Houston, Texas. Amanda’s writing showcases her traditional influences. Accompanied by her “family”, blood related or not, Amanda Pascali has released music and performed internationally, including in Italy, Romania and the United States. She performs solo as well as in a duo, trio, and quartet.
- Amanda writes music to tell the story of a girl, transplanted from the Corona and Forrest Hills neighborhoods of New York City to the center of Houston, Texas. Amanda was driven from a young age to be a messenger of her family’s stories and diaspora. Her music, now coined Immigrant American Folk, delivers a powerful narrative on being “too foreign for here, too foreign for home, and never enough for both.”
