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.
