We are happy to introduce our first Venezuelan bird and artist from ‘A Guide to the Birdsong of South America‘. As our 9th artist we give you Algodón Egipcio who will be creating one track inspired by the stunningly coloured and aptly named Cotorra del Sol or Sun Parakeet. Find out more about the bird and the artist below. Still three days left to support our Kickstarter to make this album happen. Check it out here!
The Bird – Cotorra del Sol
The Artist – Algodón Egipcio
Algodón Egipcio is a Venezuelan artist and one half of the lovely, melody soaked pop duo Jóvenes y Sexys. Under his production moniker, Algodón AKA Cheky makes wonderfully spacey, atmospheric lo-fi electronica but with melody at its heart and his warm vocals drifting over the top. He recently took part in the wonderful Norte Sonoro project in Mexico and has made a name for himself on the Latin American underground scene. Listen below:
