World Music Festival Chicago presents: La Yegros

September 20, 2014 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm

La Yegros has been a powerful presence on Buenos Aires’ underground scene for many years. Her vibrant sound, unique voice, and larger-than-life performance presence, gives her the point-of-view of an artist with South American flair, but a global mindset.

La Yegros resides in the pulsing heart of cosmopolitan Buenos Aires, but her family hails from the tropical climates found in the rural rain forests of the north, bordering Brazil. She received classical, conservatory training in music and got her break when she played before thousands as part of the De La Guarda experimental theatre.

“Viene de Mi” recording sessions were overseen by Argentina’s groundbreaking producer and composer King Coya, who saw in her something “sharp and high, wild and aboriginal”.
