The duo comprised of Esteban and Manuel was a mutation in the phylogenesis of Latin music through a cheeky and fresh reinterpretation of the classic Dominican spirit and the typical rhythms of torrid and sylvan Colombia. Their unexpected breakup at the beginning of the year did not take long to lead to new life beyond that tandem of indie cumbia artisans. Along came Ortiga, a solo project by “Chicho” (Manuel), an intrepid guy who, with this new alias, returns determined to satisfy his desire to push genres apparently far removed from alternative music towards a new post-indie imaginary, exuding a level of irreverent excellence where kitsch inevitably ends up transforming into an exciting manoeuvre of musical reinvention through fiery deconstructions of tropical minimalism and music for postmodern festivals. Between Bad Bunny, Rubén Blades and Omar Souleyman there is a whole series of influences, ranging from involuted bossa nova to roguish downtempo and lo-fi reggaeton. As if early Marc Anthony decided to produce a psychocumbia album for Chicha Libre. New sounds of lysergic merengue in the MIDI tradition. #latin
