PREMIÈRE: Manuel Vera Tudela Wither “Flor Amarilla (El Búho Remix)”17 August, 2015
We had a pleasant surprise the other day when Latin America-obsessed British producer El Búho told us that he’d been inspired by one of the tracks from our recent Peru compilation and felt compelled to create a remix of it.
The song in question was “Flor Amarilla” by Manuel Vera Tudela Wither, a contemporary Andean folk tune full of feel-good splendour that spirals off into a mountainside blitz of bonhomie. With hindsight it seemed like the perfect choice for El Búho, a prolific and skilled producer working loosely within the digital cumbia and Andean beat strains of forward-thinking Latin American electronica. His recent works include Cumbias Del Oro, A Guide To The Birdsong of South America (of which he was curator) and the History of Colour collaborative EP with Barrio Lindo.
We recently interviewed El Búho about his latest Cumbias Del Oro disc of pirate cumbias.
The original version of “Flor Amarilla” is available on the Sounds and Colours Peru compilation and Manuel Vera Tudela Wither’s Cusco album.
“Flor Amarilla (El Búho Remix)” was mastered by Daniel Lucas.
