Sr. Faraon

Señor Faraón is the solo project of Ismael Varela, the percusionist of the Montevideo-based rock group Hablan Por la Espalda.

Closer to the roots of folk than ever before, Sr. Faraón has became a notable character on this kind of music in the Uruguayan scene.

Here’s one of the most beautiful songs from his new album, “Piel de Culebra”, which you can stream in its entirety here.
