Chancha Via Circuito

Chancha has forged a path from his town outside the urban sprawl of Buenos Aires in the east of Argentina up through the border with Bolivia and into the Northern hemisphere where he’s bringing new fans to native drum traditions. In his first release, Rodante, Chancha took cumbia into uncharted territory retrofitting the Latin rhythm for a worldly audience. With Rio Arriba, South American folklore takes the reins and, under Chancha’s steady hand, obscure backwoods rhythms take on a top shelf lifestyle as folklore hits the club.

Obscure backwoods rhythms take on a top shelf lifestyle, mixed and chopped by Chancha. Chancha developed his unique craft playing for crowds at Zizek Club in Buenos Aires and DJing across the US, Canada and Mexico. Fans from Chile to St. Petersburg to Coachella have found love for his music; Chancha’s production was requested by National Geographic TV for a New Zealand band and won a remix contest of Angolan kuduro put on by Mad Decent. He has imported raw material to metro landscapes, reminding listeners of the mysteries of nature lurking beyond urban gates. A sentry on stage, Chancha tracks lead listeners up ancestral mountain paths to leap streams and strut summits, on dance floors from Brooklyn to Los Angeles to Montreal.
