KCRW Video Premiere: Lagartijeando – La memoria del viento

Written by

Exploration of folkloric rhythms of the Americas mixed with modern genres of music never grows old…and these sounds never cease to amaze me (when done right).

Today I introduce you to Argentinian musician & producer Mati Zundel, whose current project, Lagartijeando, has me enraptured.

He’s put together traditional Andean music and instruments with chill downtempo electronic beats to create a very appealing sound. His new album El Gran Poder is slated for release on 3/31 via Wonderwheel. Today we bring you the first video from this new project, which appears to be a part of a larger movement of global electronic music in Latin America.

If you’re a fan of Chancha via Circuito or Dengue! Dengue! Dengue!, definitely recommend you check out more of Lagartijeando’s Andean/Patagonian inspired grooves.
