Los Pachamama — Spanish for Mother Earth — is the perfect moniker for this multi-generational musical family from the heart of the Gulf of Mexico. For 30 years, they’ve restored an appreciation for musical traditions born from mixing rhythms and harmonies from the deep folklores of Mexico, the Caribbean and Latin America. Enter dynamic Mexican singer-songwriter and poly-instrumentalist Flor Amargo, a graduate of Mexico City’s National Conservatory of Music and semifinalist on The Voice Mexico. She has created what she dubs ‘cathartic pop,’ a sound characterized by nonstop fiery energy, emotion and drama.
Their spontaneous meeting melds two approaches and musical visions as roots and pop music find common ground, for a fresh, charismatic ‘neofolk’ sound that revives musical traditions. Producer Ivan Duran of Stonetree Records (Andy Palacio, Calypso Rose, Kobo Town and Aurelio Martinez) puts the finishing touches on this sonic marriage on their upcoming recording. Expect an awe-inspiring show of force and eccentricity with daring and innovative arrangements as they pour out a deep love of songs that have moved generations of listeners.
