Born in Sgo del Estero, Argentina, Daniel Abdala is an electronic musician, composer, producer, guitar/bass player, and singer. Turvia is his main project. It began in 2005, as an industrial-rock oriented band but it evolved forward to become an electronic solo project, with influences of noise, ambient music, synth-pop, experimental and a touch of gothic/esoteric art. His music is trippy, with elements such as mid-tempos, raw landscapes, and twisted voices, but all warped in ethereal melodies....
