NEWSFLASH: First things first…we made it! 100% funded on Kickstarter!
Just a few days ago’A Guide to the Birdsong of South America’ passed the 100% mark on Kickstater thanks to some fantastic support from all over the world. We still have four days left to go so please back us if you can – the more money we can make the more we can give to Aves y Conservación!
We still have a flock of exciting new artists to reveal and are going to announce them one a day, until the end, starting today. So, drumroll please to welcome our first Peruvian group for the album – Dengue Dengue Dengue! The masked new-cumbia duo have chosen the unassumingly beautiful and critically endangered Remolinera Real or Royal Cinclodes (Cinclodes aricomae), found only in Peru and numbering between 50 and 250. Below the bird that will inspire them to make the track and some background on los Dengues!
The Bird – La Remolinera Real
The Artist – Dengue Dengue Dengue
Dengue Dengue Dengue are a duo hailing from Lima, Peru who have made a splash on the world of tropical bass for their bombastic live shows, bass crunching productions and refreshing reinterpretations of classic cumbia, chicha and Latin American sounds.
With an ear for the dancefloor and a foot shuffling beat they have released music on Enchufada (owned by Buraka Som Sistema), played Sónar and toured the world alongside their own wonderful VJ, Sixta. They are also amongst the collective that started the now legendary Toma! fiestas in Lima, a mecca of the city’s flourishing underground music scene.
To help us make this album a reality, pay for the vinyl printing, graphic design and distribution of ‘A Guide to the Birdsong of South America’ we are running a Kickstarter. With four days left you can still contribute and guarantee yourself a copy of the album or some of the other wonderful prizes we have! Back us here or by clicking on the item below.
