This is our tribute to Argentina's thriving underground music scene, featuring the artists and groups pushing nueva canción, rock, folk and digital cumbia into brand new territories. Get lost in the incomparable vocals of Soema Montenegro, Lulacruza and Mariana Päraway, vibrate with the hypnotic bass of Faauna and Nación Ekeko and hip shake to the indie rock grooves of Mi Amigo Invencible, Los Espíritus and Julio y Agosto.

Carefully compiled to include artists from all over Argentina, Que Canchero is a vibrant snapshot of Argentina's finest contemporary bands. From Lauphan's accordion-accented rural blues to Shaman Y Los Pilares de Creación's gothic rock and Fémina's folk-hop to Juan Namuncurá's indigenous synth pop, the result is eclectic but with no let up in quality. Argentina is a country obsessed with music and these are some of its finest new voices.

These are artists influenced by the past, by Argentina's legacy of rock, tango and folk music, as well as the cumbia, hip-hop (that we can hear in the raw rap-meets-dancehall of Sara Hebe & Ramiro Jota) and electronic music that has become so much stronger in presence since the 90s, but who are willing to take these styles into new territory. A great example can be heard in the completely different approaches to folk music undertaken by three of the artists on the compilation: Arbolceniza offering a sensorial pop take; Santiago Córdoba taking us on an inventive guitar-led folktronica journey; and Alan Courtis (previously of Reynols) opting instead to deconstruct the form and create something entirely different.
