Formerly known as Lagartijeando, electro-cumbie maestro Mati Zundel takes indigenous roots, and layers it with a contemporary sensibility. Shaman chants, charango guitar loops, electronic fuzz, bass, and beats merge into the oft promised, yet seldom delivered global dance music."The Argentine folklore music I heard on the radio all the time as a little boy recorded itself in me from a young age, even though I could only fully appreciate it later” Mati says. “We have a complicated history in Argentina, always looking to Europe as our example and always negating our own culture, thinking that indigenous culture is ‘uncivilized.’ Now for the first time Argentina is starting to look inside and appreciate its own culture”. ‘Amazonico Gravitante’ blends dance music with música típica, a combination of chacareras, huaynos, and vidalas two-step with electronic textures. Shaman chants and charango guitar loops form the backbone of Mati's songs, and tribal chants create the backbeat to percussion and bass. The result is a furiously original style that takes indigenous roots, and layers it with a contemporary sensibility, maintaining respect for ritual and tradition while pushing classic Latin influences into a cosmic future. Recorded across Latin America, these songs dive deep into Mati’s cumbia obsession – especially ‘Senor Montecostes’, ‘Zindud’ (featuring ex-Blonde de Rolle vocalist Marina Gasolina), and ‘Cumbia De La Loviya’ – then push beyond Argentine borders. In ‘La Montana’ he uses Ecuadorean bombo rhythms. In ‘Por El Pueblo’ the lyrics come from traditional Bolivian tarkas flute music.
