Born in 2012 on the west side of Buenos Aires, Agrupación Ilegal Los Imparciales is a mix of traditional cumbia, Peruvian chicha and instrumental psychedelia. A full live act and often transcendental experience, the group utilizes the classic instrumentation of electric bass, electric guitar, farfisa organ and percussion - an homage to older times, without the crutch of electronic sounds and samples. It's a new generation of young and accomplished musicians bringing forward the sounds of a lost era and aesthetic, so relevant in today's modern music landscape. Already with two studio albums under their belt and a third on its way, it's high time the group is poised for a worldwide release sampler at the hands of Names You Can Trust.
