PREMIERE – Balam – El Curandero (Hard Fist)

After a first volume released in September 2020 on Hard Fist, Argentinian Balam comes with “Chants of Pachamama (Part. 2)”, including a remix by Matias Aguayo.

This time Balam focuses on the experience around the ritual of magic plants that is practiced in the deep South-American rainforest. By mixing modular synth, stromping basslines, haunting vocals and real played percussions produced in his studio “Submarea” in Buenos AIres, he recreates a psychedelic trip from beginning to end.

“El Curandero” (The Shaman) is he who leads the ritual – it is the second tune of a frenetic organic and modular percussion bass driven dance stomper. Blazing synthesizers create a state of confusion and hallucinations when “el Curandero” chants his icaros. The djembes and shakers move behind the heavy bass-line while analog ding and dongs go crazy all over.
