Plegaria del Árbol negro
With the release of their new album, Plegaria del Árbol Negro, this entrancing Argentinian duo has sealed their destiny as a force of musical genuis. Intent on conserving the voice of Argentina’s indigenous Toba culture, Tonolec plants electronic beats in native prayers, seeding a fertile landscape of rhythms.
Lead singer Charo Bogarín deploys her voice as the central instrument laced with wind and drums, while Diego Perez stirs us with a pulse that is festive but also deep and meditative. Full-bodied, this is an album that is sure to leave a legacy.
