This dude from Uruguay, Selectorchico aka Nandy Cabrera, just sent me this brilliant track that he calls “Gnawatek”.

It’s a fusion between trippy and psychedelic Latin music and the deep blues of Morocco via the Gnawa. It’s a mesmerizing and toxic fusion, taking in the Shamanic spirit of South America and the Trance of North Africa.  Kind of reminds me of the atmospherics of Prehispanico but with a North African influence!

It was a piece that was commissioned for a LatinArab Film Festival some months back and I’m really feeling it.
