Our Christmas gift to you! A spontaneous 3-track release of all new songs inspired by the re-discovery of our song “La Luna” and the support from our friend Arturo Ulises who kindly asked us to release this song. Enjoy and expect more new music in 2013!
Two new songs for the spring. They are “El Medio Contenido” and “Catorce”. Both songs were written in Brooklyn and Paris during a very long summer that took us to many places and found is in between many spaces. The single is released by the awesome netlabel Beko DSL! You can download both songs at http://www.beko-dsl.com (also feel free to explore their discography; it’s packed with a lot of great music)
Our friends from the Sao Paulo based collective Si No Puedo Bailar just released this compilation where artists from all over Latin America pay tribute to great Brazillian singer-songwriter Adriana Calcanhotto. We were invited by Rodrigo Maceira to take one of her songs and make it our own. We went with “Sudoeste” and had a lot of fun recording and reimagining her song. A lot of other good friends appear in this compilation such as Mima who is also from Puerto Rico. You can download the compilation for free over at http://www.naomoromais.com (to find the link just keep scrolling to the right!) and if you are lucky and live in / or visit Brazil you may get the vinyl version of the album for free at one of their shows.
Live video of Camila at El Teatro en el El Museo del Barrio (NYC). The building used to be an orphanage decades before. Some say that you can still listen to children’s laughter at night. This was a special interactive Balún concert for children and adults that incorporated live visuals, instrument making and audience participation. For this song we were joined by Julio Cesar Morales from the experimental puppet theater company Y No Había Luz (http://http://www.ynohabialuz.com/). Thanks so much to Armando Croda for putting this video together!
The super awesome music blog Club Fonograma released their latest compilation, and our song “Las Olas” from Memoria Textil is in it. This is a great chance to check out other Latin American bands doing great stuff. We love it.
