Exclusive Premiere: Insólito UniVerso “Vuelve” (Olindo Records)
We are proud to present the second release in Olindo Records’ Venezuelan 7″ trilogy, coming from Paris based quartet Insólito UniVerso!
The quartet takes inspiration from a wide range of sources such as Psychedelic Folk, Baroque singing, and traditional Latin American music, particularly through the rhythms and instruments of Venezuelan folklore.
‘Vuelve’ is a Joropo, which is Venezuela’s most recognizable traditional genre. There are many variations within Joropo, but the most widely spread one hails from the western plains. This style is usually played with harp, cuatro, and maracas. However, ‘Vuelve’ is far from a traditional song as it incorporates drums, electric bass and a Farfisa organ; imagine for a second what would be if Stereolab was born in the Venezuelan “llanos”.
The 7″ serves as a preview for their full LP to be released late summer / early autumn also on Olindo and inspired by music from Aldemaro Romero, Cecilia Todd, Un Dos Tres y Fuera, Stereolab, Ennio Morricone, and Delia Derbyshire to name a few.
