Javier Barría

Over the last decade Chilean cantautor Javier Barría has been releasing a new record about every year.

But with the latest one, “Folclor”, it took him almost two years and two countries (Chile and Argentina) to record and master the album. It resulted in a variety of approaches towards the tradition of songwriting, mixing old and new into something Javier himself calls “after pop”.

While you can hear “Folclor” in its entirety on his profile on Bandcamp, here’s a new video off the album, “El Día En Que Dejaste De Quererme”.

You can also follow Javier on Soundcloud, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr.
