80 Bands Around the World: Argentinia

I missed last Friday's post for this feature, so this is the first of three. Today's stop is Argentina, down in South America. The artist representing the country this time around is Federico Aubele, who currently lives in Buenos Ares.

The image “http://b3.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/00347/38/63/347443683_l.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

I think of this music as a sort of world-electronica. There's a real fusion of sound here, along with the feel of 4hero or Thievery Cooperation. The music here is influenced by a number of American styles, from Jamacia, Mexico, the US, and of course, Argentina.
His first album was actually produced by the Thievery Cooperation, entitled Gran Hotel Buenos Aires, and was released in 2004. His latest album, Panamerica, was released in 2007.

En cada lugar - Federico Aubele
