La Candela del Río (Olindo Records)

Insólito Universo La Candela Del Río Cover

The Paris-based quartet take the music of their native Venezuela and imbue it with a melancholy that reflects the present uncertainties of their homeland. The waltzes, ballads and African rhythms of Venezuelan roots music are deconstructed through jazz inflections, drones, Indian elements and bossa nova on a debut that is unsettling, beautiful and original. A Top of the World in #146.
