I got lucky when I discovered Chancha Via Circuito.
In February, I passed through Argentina en route to Antarctica. In search of music for my travelogue, I found this article about contemporary Argentinian musicians.
Although there were many great artists on this list, Chancha Via Circuito instantly caught my ear. With the perfect blend of traditional cumbia and electronics, Chancha Via Circuito (Pedro Canale) hits my sweet spot. It feels mystical and transcendental. It feels modern yet timeless.
This footage was shot in Ushuaia, Argentina, at the southern most tip of South America. For this video, I wanted to experiment more with a kaleidoscope-like effect to capture the other worldly elements of the song.
