Barrio Lindo

Join the journey around Latin American sounds with Barrio Lindo’s magnificent new full-length album.

“Albura” is the latest LP from Agustín Rivaldo a.k.a. Barrio Lindo. He is Argentinean, but he’s currently based in Berlin.

He’s also a co-founder of Shika Shika label – and “Albura” is actually their first physical release of (also available on streaming platforms).

The title “Albura” refers to the youngest wood of a tree, and where the most recent growth rings of the trunk are found – an important part of the wood for luthiers.

That is why this new record merges the two elements of Agustín’s music activity: his role as producer and his role of a luthier.

“Albura” depicts the last three years of Barrio Lindo’s touring around Latin America, United States and Europe. So the material combines folkloric sounds of each region: cumbias, sambas and carnavales are part of his own map.

“Facón” (with Colombia’s Jhon Montoya as a guest), “Otoño Primavera” (with Peru’s Lulacruza) and “Túneles” (featuring our beloved Ela Minus) are just the passports for this journey, in which he invited also Wende Wen and Carrot Green.
