EL KINTO - S/T

el%20kinto-el%20kinto.jpgIf you’re a fan of Tropicalia, you’re bound to be knocked out by this compilation. Led by the eccentric Edouardo Mateo, El Kinto recorded some of the more unique sounds Uruguay had to offer in the late ‘60s. Their trick was to blend their country’s native “candombe” music with bossa nova and British beat. Seductively melodic and slightly off-kilter, El Kinto’s songs were never even released at the time, strangely enough. The liner notes explain why in compelling detail, and also provide the English translations of their Spanish lyrics, just in case you wanna sing along.
