los chipitos de chapultepec

Five people on the room. One of them is a Peruvian chaman from the Amazonas. He says he has something that will cleanse our bodies and souls. Suddenly he pulls out a record from his chamanic purse, we look to each other… excited, very excited. We took the record and put it on the turntable. The chaman says…” beware, mi niño, once you press play, there’s no way back” What the hell he knows, it’s my turntable anyway. Who invited him to the party, eh? I press play…and everything changed. An estrange feeling filled me, from the tip of the toes to every hair in my head. Suddenly my shoulders are moving from right to left. What kind of flow is this? My mestizo blood urges me to keep dancing to this. “What is this?” I asked the chaman… It´s Chipitos de Chapultepec, boy…. Now shut up and dance. The playlist is running…you better be prepared for every song…this trip is on!!!! “Baila Teresa” – the first sip of the potion…strange and warm sparks on my guts… “Ay que calor” – the potion begins to make effect… hips moving on their own “Navegando por el Loa” – the lights are […]

Los Bárbara Blade

Barbara Blade was a character in a terrible commercial deodorant. Something like a Lara Croft shaving her armpits with a knife. So, when you hear the name of the band you understand from the beginning that the thing is not going to go down a very traditional way. Then you start to listen to them and you do not know if you do not understand anything or start to understand the name a little more. You feel as if you’ve gotten a handful of beats and put them in a mixer to the max. With you inside. And with some or another pill, probably not Vitamin C, as they named one of their songs. Electronic, tribal rhythms, cumbia, ragamuffin, anyway, no matter how you listen to them in your house, you are going to want to be in a disc drowned in a sea of ​​bodies that shake, giving life. It’s difficult to cross the line of popular today. And it’s more difficult to go several more lines. But it is the only way to achieve a result as strange as unique. Exportable, importable, renewable and dance on the table. Bravo LBB, now I understand the world less but who […]

The name of the two discs of La Minga, as well as their own group, there are no clues as to what to expect from them. The first album “Música Itinerante” (2015) and the second “La Combi” (2016), speak us of a band in constant movement, that escapes from the creative sedentarism, the conformism and the satisfaction. With the courage of looking for something new or something they already knew, but that can be seen with other eyes. And there is nothing more pleasant than someone who takes you to unexplored places, which invite you to discover, to break your head. And once there, teach you how to feel the place, to recognition of every aroma, every sound, every element that composes it. Because La Minga’s variety of beats, either in funk, folk, jazz or gypsy, has a perfect mix of alternative instruments for you to discover every detail of their songs. So you can see the whole landscape and feel it. It is a journey not of tourism but of discovery, as when it is a city and instead of touring the typical places in the deep, real neighborhoods. And the best thing about that trip, is that once […]

Could it be the lizard face you get at 3 a.m. with tree terremotos on track? Or the wild spirit displayed in every gig in every of their song? I don’t know and I don’t care. The only thing important when Ywana plays, is to keep moving and dancing to the gracious and upbeat sounds of the Carnaval Mestizo. Coming directly from the streets of Gran Avenida, and owning every space available to spread their message with the best tools they can use, fast ska, chilombian/villera cumbia and the best pasitos de baile. And is with Carnaval Mestizo 1, their last album, that they rise the big flag of the Chilean weveo. Our own third world representation of the things we love to celebrate. Formed by Alvaro Ywana on vocals, Cris Acevedo on guitar, Felipe Montes on bass and choirs, Alejandro Espinoza on percussion, Axel Jabaquinto playing accordion, Luis Vásquez on trombone, Javier Ramos with the tenor sax and Millelche Sandoval on the alto sax.
