Kanaku Y El Tigre Release First Taster of New Album

By 05 March, 2015

Peruvian folk duo Kanaku Y El Tigre are back with a new album and hoping to build on the success of their debut, Caracoles. That album was built around guitars with a strong folk flavour, revealing influences like Devandra Banhart, Bob Dylan and Beirut. Their second album, which will be called Quema Quema Quema promises a progression in the duo’s sound with additional electronic textures.

The album will feature ten tracks, including two sung in English, and promises “euphoric, unapologetically feel-good hooks littered with electronic jitters, ghostly delays, serene Hawaiian slide guitars and a chorus of other-wordly vocal harmonies.”

“Bubucelas” is the first track to be released from the album and gently suggests the group’s new direction. You can download “Bubucelas” from official.fm/tracks/d2D5, watch the video on YouTube (requires email address) or listen below:
