Las Brujas del Barrio & Rakkatak at the Burdock on July 6, 2018


Mark your calendars for an evening featuring Las Brujas del Barrio and Rakkatak. In true Canadian fashion, the evening will fuse South American and Indian music.

Las Brujas del Barrio sing the songs of their “abuelos” (i.e. their grandparents). This includes songs by Chavela Vargas, Mercedes Sosa, Violeta Parra, Lila Downs, Isabel Parra, Lola Beltran.

Las Brujas will open the evening, followed by a collaboration with us. Finally, we will close the evening with a short set of our latest creations: The Burdock, 1184 Bloor Street West, Toronto, Ontario M6H 1N2
How much: $10 in advance, $15 at the door

We wanna Tarana

Happy Spring all! We’ve waited so long for this weather in Toronto and we’re just loving it and the inspiration it brings.

We wanted to share some of the new material that we’re composing for the next album. Right now, we’re addicted to a style of playing called Tarana, where the voice is used to mimic rhythms made by the tabla.

You can check it out below. Enjoy!
