This is a really special one!
Earthly Measures #10
20th July 2018
We will be taking over The Yard once more, this time joining us are Argentinian producer & DJ Lagartijeando who will be bringing along some special friends, Coro qom Chelaalapi – a 13 piece indigenous choir from Argentina!
Lagartijeando came to our attention after his breakthrough album last year on Wonderwheel Records which became easily one of our favourite records of 2017. He was raised on rhythms of the Argentinian backwoods and dips his dance tracks in country folk gold where chacareras, huaynos, and vidalas two step with jungle and electronica. Shaman chant and charango guitar loops are the backbone of Lagartijeando’s signature style. Native voices are the backbeat to percussion and bass tracks with organ melodies combining cumbia and psychedelic noise.
Joining him playing live are Coro qom Chelaalapi- founded in 1962, Chelaalapi Qom Choir (Band of song thrushes), is a choir belonging to the aboriginal ethnic group Qom of the Argentine Chaco that rescues the ancestral chants of its Culture performed together with its native instruments. A 13 piece choir they tend to sing and play within the audience, creating an experience which is truly unique.
We invite Tim Garcia back once more, one of our favourite DJ’s in London, always a pleasure for the Jazz FM & Musica Macondo man to play with us!
Do not miss out!
