So i was chatting with Cristian Del Negro the other day about remixing and collab between our bands – ShazaLaKazoo and Fauna (stay tuned btw, it`s gonna be true cross-continental bomba), when he told me about his side-project named Sonido Guay-Neñe. The story goes like this:
“Sonido Guay-Neñe its a project dedicated to rescue ancestral roots music from Andes area, such as copla music. The copla, originally performed with voice and caja (small drum), is passed from generation to generation by the natives of the Andes, usually by women dedicated to grazing animals.
In Sonido Guay-Neñe, these ancient songs are mixed with electronic rhythms and electric instruments.
Sonido Guay-Neñe are: Lea Skames , Cristian Del Negro (Fauna, ZZKrecords) and Sandra Amaya, folk singer, belonging to the ethnic Huarpe.”
