Chancha Via Circuito
Friday, June 17, 2011
For this New Sounds, we'll dive into music from South America, with much of it from Brazil & Argentina. We’ll hear some selections from a new compilation from the Red Hot organization: “Red Hot and Rio,” Vol. 2, including music from Caetano Veloso, remixed by Prefuse 73, David Byrne with Caetano, and Beirut performing a Caetano song, "o Leaozinho."

This New Sounds program is one devoted to the Latin Groove, especially the cumbia rhythms that we’ll hear in several pieces on this show. We’ll begin in Argentina with Chancha via Circuito, the alter ego of producer Pedro Canale, who enjoys chopping up and then mixing folk guitar, flutes, and Coke-bottle percussion to make retrofitted cumbia for the clubs.
