La Yegros is at the forefront of the Argentinian Nu-Cumbia genre, incorporating and placing a modern lens on Chamamé, Carnavalito and many other Argentine folk genres less familiar to international audiences. Originally from the tropical climates of the rural rain forests in Northeast Argentina, bordering Brazil, La Yegros’ sound is spirited and eclectic. Produced by “Fuerza Bruta” producer King Coya, her singing cuts through the male-dominated contemporary cumbia scene, drawing on both deep folk traditions and cutting edge beats. The electro-folklore artist has toured extensively internationally, but only made her U.S. debut last year. Her music has been commended by NPR, Time Out, The BBC, The Guardian and Spanish language press worldwide. In spring 2016, La Yegros released her album, “Magnetismo,” born out of international collaborations and experiences throughout the numerous international tours the band has completed in the past several years. La Yegros tours with the support of Southern Exposure: Performing Arts of Latin America in 2016-2017. Click on calendar for all tour dates.
