Marley Muerto (feat. Hugo Idrovo)

As if the repetitive, relaxing acoustic guitar riff wasn’t enough to transport us to a summer-in-the-beach state of mind, Marley Muerto presents a song ripe with imagery about sailing away. It’s a collaboration with Hugo Idrovo, one of Ecuador’s most esteemed musicians and one of the first to blend elements of blues and rock into Ecuadorian music – along with Alex Alvear and Hector Napolitano, with whom he founded Promesas Temporales back in 1983. This song is the opener to Pararmar, Marley Muerto’s debut album. Thanks to its colourful cast of guest musicians it’s an electronically-imbued portrait of the variety that can be found if one searches in the right corners of Ecuador.
