El Viejo Hombre de Los Andes comes forth with a series of songs that find the pulsing beats in andean music and wrap them up in a complex package that rescues not only the sounds but also the tales of the mountains and the jungles and forest on their skirts.
During a playthrough of EVHA’s debuts There are times at which you will actually hear birdsong, and others at which your brain might just liberally insert them as it sees fit. Nature and technology collude for an album that is at times very complex and even a little bit difficult to listen to, but extremely rewarding for those that decide to stick around for the experience.
EVHA is music for your most intense dances, meditating, or for contemplating your favorite landscapes with your headphones on, especially if those happen to be located on the steep andean mountainsides. Sanjuanitos, bombas and pasillos all echo and bounce through the album’s ethereal soundscapes..
