“Novias” is the new collaboration between Javiera Mena and El Guincho

By 17 January, 2012

Here is a new collaboration between two of the Spanish-speaking music world’s finest talents. “Novias” already existed on El Guincho’s Pop Negro album from last year. Here, Javiera Mena – Chile’s queen of electro-pop – adds her vocals, giving the song a completely new lease of life. There’s a power in Javiera Mena’s voice which always grabs your attention, making you believe every word she says, and it’s in full effect here.

Javiera Mena’s Mena album was one of our favourites from 2010, and although El Guincho hails from Spain, he has shown his allegiance to Latin America with releases like Piratas de Sudamerica.
