Chancha Via Circuito is the brainchild of Buenos Aires native Pedro Canale. For the past ten years, Pedro has turned traditional Andean music on its head by mixing it with heavy electronic beats and more recently collaborating with some of South America’s most innovative musicians, like Mateo Kingman, Kaleema, and Lido Pimienta. His newest album, Bienaventuranza, is as Chancha as it gets- with elements from Cumbia to Dancehall to Andean Folk to Global house, crystal clear production, and collaborations that are evidently natural and genuine, the record holds true to the sound that Canale has played such a huge part in creating. Canale was in town to perform at Sahara Lounge but before he did we invited the band to come play for us in Studio 1A. You can listen to that session and his interview with KUTX in the player at the bottom of the post. Enjoy!
