We have always been very curious to understand new rhythms, patterns, and metrics in music. It doesn’t matter where it comes from or what era it is from, it’s all part of a big puzzle, and you can navigate the endless possibilities that that knowledge offers you. The only problem is time, which you need to explore and understand various musical traditions. So the idea behind the project is to keep moving and exploring different paths and techniques.
We started focusing on the mixture of electronica, cumbia and dub for the first album, and then moved slowly into zouk, batida and Portuguese/Angolan sounds for the next EP. This led us to African music, always drawing parallels between those sounds and our local traditions from Peru. So for the third album, we went fully into Afro-Peruvian sound, working for the first time with live musicians on stage. And now, for the last two releases, we have been focusing more and more on polyrhythms.
