New single and EP release details from Chile’s Kali Mutsa

By 14 September, 2011

Kali Mutsa is one of those artists that hits the scene with a bang. In this case, that bang is caused by “Tunupa”, her debut single which came out yesterday. Instantly it’s her voice which grabs the attention, a mixture of rough and smooth, but as the song continues it’s clear this is also musically a fascinating piece, with the rattling reggaeton rhythm that started the song giving out halfway through, to be replaced by a carnivalesque “oompah” beat with horns and scatting vocals taking the song to it’s conclusion.

It’s a very promising debut, which will be followed by an EP, “Ambrolina”, on October 18th. This is definitely one to watch out for.
