Released as part of Sounds and Colours' 10th Anniversary Fundraising Campaign this compilation features new, rare and unreleased music from across Latin America, including exclusive tracks by Orkesta Mendoza with Mexican Institute of Sound and Calexico, a first listen to Monte, the new project from Bomba Estereo's Simón Mejía, brand new music from Chile's hugely influential ESDLCP, two acoustic recordings from Brazil's Kassin (including a beautiful Kraftwerk cover) and many original songs created exclusively for this compilation, as well as other new tracks and rarities.
All profits from this album will go towards Sounds and Colours. After 10 years of existence we are currently raising funds to make Sounds and Colours an even better resource for discovering Latin music and culture, and to ensure our survival for another 10 years (especially in light of the lost income happening as a result of the current lockdown). In that way, we intend to retain our status as a vital platform for Latin American musicians, film-makers, artists, writers and other creative souls to find an appreciative audience.
Find out about the rest of our fundraising campaign, which includes the pre-order of a 10th Anniversary book, and the sale of lots of vinyl, CDs, books, DVDs and t-shirts, at igg.me/at/sounds-and-colours-10-years-fundraiser/x/627815#/
