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 […]

It´s difficult to define Cholita Sound. Her music is a mixture of lyrics, rhythms, places, visual, aesthetic, that opens a wardrobe in your head to find it in the bottom of it a new world full of psychedelia and powerful rhythms. A place where your grid definition of music has no place and where you expect to find everything, because you can really find anything. A unique and free place. It is a mixture of latinpop, reggaeton, disco, tecnockish (if we try, unsuccessfully, to define it) is a kaleidoscope full of sensations. You feel like you’re on the altiplano, in a taxi, in a Bellavista discoteque, in Central America, in Miami, in the corner of the bar. It takes you into a chaos that you try to sort out and understand, but you can’t. All you have left is to get drunk with that hallucinogenic chaos, and lose yourself. And you enjoy it. Caterina Purdy a.k.a. Purdy Rocks is the real name of Cholita Sound. Visual artist. Singer. Producer. Creator of worlds. Reggaetonera. Teletransporter. Aesthetic adventurer. Rocker. Cumbiera. All together and nothing specific. And vice versa. Let’s get lost. Facebook • Soundcloud By: Sergio Negrier

TOMASA DEL REAL
Neon lights, palm trees, wild nights and a never ending summer. The beaches and sunsets of Iquique are the perfect landscapes for Tomasa del Real´s neoperreo. With provocative lyrics and hypnotic sounds, the northern reggaetonera wants you to move your hips, light the blunts up and show off the bling bling. So pimp out and get nasty, there is no room for modesty and good manners here. The party is just rising up and the piscolas are getting down. An open invitation to enjoy the tropical pleasures. Tu Señora or Prendelo reflects the direct influences of latino underground pop and the most bold reaggeton. Because Tomasa del Real is not here to talk you about swag, either you learn to bellakear and frontear in español or go back to your tourist package in the middle of the desert. Pure latino identity and a fierce maleanteo, Tomasa del Real is becoming the main female singer in the scene. Getting more recognition across the frontiers, you are cordially invited to explore the north reggaeton scene. And my friends never forget that for Tomasa, the night is far from over.
