This is the project of instrumental music by the argentine Facundo Salgado, who, with his Live Looping Set, fuses natives rhythms from different Parts of South America, mainly Andean music, with beats that flirt with both cumbia and sounds of the jungle as with purely urban rhythms, such as Hip Hop or Electronic Music. Natives and digital instruments are executed, recorded and mixed in real time, creating an atmosphere of long flight and movement that invites dancing, where tradition and modernity complement.
Strong Bass Grooves , synthesizers and drum machines, live with the bewitched sound of the charango and wind instruments characteristic of the Andes region. Mountain and city, soil and asphalt, wood and electricity, merge to give place to their music.
