Queen of electro-cumbia,
This review is from: Viene De Mi (Audio CD)
As someone who loves latin music in all it's forms, I love Buenos Aires' ZZK records. Their music is normally instrumental or accompanied by just sampled vocals - but La Yegros's album is quite different - her beautiful singing and rapping has a refreshingly organic feel, laid over King Coya's (her husband's!) sampled beats. You can hear a lot more than just cumbia in this though. From the echo of the tango accordion to deep deep dub-like bass, each track takes you on a different musical journey. I've listened to it countless times. There are many layers to it to keep you listening. Beautiful lyrics too - if you understand Spanish that is!
