9.15pm – 10.45pm La Yegros ON STAGE
La Yegros play a long awaited UK debut show hot on the heels of a new April release on Soundway Records. La Yegros has been a powerful presence on Buenos Aires’ underground scene bringing a full live band to the digital cumbia party. Her vibrant sound, unique voice, and larger-than-life performance presence, gives her the perspective of an artist with South American flair, but a global mindset.
La Yegros lives in the pulsing heart of Buenos Aires, but her family hails from the tropical climates found in the rural rain forests of northern Argentina, bordering Brazil.
There’s a sass to her singing, at once fresh and urgent yet aged in experience and attitude, that cuts through the male-dominated contemporary cumbia, drawing on both deep folk traditions and cutting edge beats.
Confident and vibrant in approach, La Yegros has been championed by MTV Iggy, as well as by Fader Magazine, who hailed La Yegros’ “raw urgency while sounding completely relaxed and conversational”.
‘Feminine, joyous and tropical… a revolution you can dance to.’ Time Out
In support, combining gentle vocals with Latin, reggae and flamenco guitar rhythms, Gizmo Varillas brings a refreshing take on the current singer songwriter genre that he calls ‘Dark Tropical.’
The night begins with a DJ set from Radio Cascabel.
Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.
