La Yegros – (Buenos Aires-Argentina)
Skittering rhythms, bombastic accordions, and thumping electronic bass characterize the sound of La Yegros (website), a rising star within a wide spectrum of genres: electronic, Argentine folk, dancehall, and soul. She currently resides in two distinct places — vibrant romantic Paris, and the pulsing heart of cosmopolitan Buenos Aires — but her family hails from the tropical climates found in the rural rain forests of the northeast Argentina, bordering Brazil. Her musical point of view is spirited and eclectic. Her live performances are electrifying.
La Yegros’ debut album “Viene de Mi” was recently released on Waxploitation, best known for developing the careers of Danger Mouse, Gnarls Barkley, and Broken Bells.
