|La Yegros Magnetismo Limited Vinyl LP
Argentinian singer-songwriter La Yegros is set to release her second album ‘Magnetismo’ on March 11th, her debut release on Soundway Records
The singer named as ‘The Queen of Nu Cumbia’, currently resides in two distinct places – the South of France and the pulsing heart of Argentina, Buenos Aires. Her eclectic music first received attention from major international media such as The Guardian, BBC, Time Out and The Fader, which led to the signing of her first deal, with debut LP ‘Viene de Mi’ released in 2013.
‘Magnetismo’ incorporates Argentinean folk traditions with cutting edge beats and punk attitude that dominate the male orientated contemporary electro cumbia in Argentina. The album integrates her collaborations and influences that were compiled from the impressive 15 international tours over the past two and a half years. The album was written on the road and the material came to life on the road.
The album includes the same power production team that were behind her breakout debut album – King Coya and Daniel Martin but with the addition of Oscar-winning engineer Anibal Kerpel who mixed the album from his studio in Los Angeles. The album features old friends such as Argentina’s folk hero Gustavo Santaolalla and the haunting violin behind electro-tango sensation Bajafono Javier Casalla.
‘Magnetismo’ infuses her old sound with new collaborations that include Puerto Candaleria from Columbia, French based singer Sabina Sciubba from electro pop group Brazilian Girls and the African roots of Lindingo from Reunion Island.
La Yegros is the latest genre-defining artist to be added to the growing dynamic roster of Soundway Records. 2015 has been a great year for Soundway Records with the debut release from ethio-cali multi-instrumentalist Dexter Story and other projects including Ibibio Sound Machine, Fumaça Preta, Ondatropica and Family Atlantica
La Yegros’ first album was huge success, selling over 20k copies. The title track Viene De Mi has over 1million streams and 1.2 million YouTube views.
