Caboclo EP cover.jpg

Caboclo is Portuguese for a person with mixed indigenous Brazilian and European ancestry.  The three track EP meshes Afro-Brazilian rhythms with Chacarera (traditional Argentinian folk music), and house beats. The EP is a musical representation of Caboclo and the cultural changes taking place throughout Brazil and Latin America. 

On the opener, El Malon Del Gaucho Molina, Lagartijeando flips the traditional upbeat Brazilian rhythm, blending it with Chacarera to produce a down-tempo dreamscape to get lost in. Malandro De Boa picks up the pace with Brazilian percussion and a rambling house beat that has been moving dancefloors wherever Mati plays in South America. The closing track, Caboclo, blends classic Brazilian guitar with a house beat that will transport you straight to the beaches of Rio.

 A celebration of the changing cultures and sounds of Latin America, Caboclo is an EP rich in texture and influences where each listen brings something new.
