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.

I have been several times in Belém and around in the delta of the Amazon & Tocantins rivers, went to carimbó little festivals in the middle of Marajó Island, taking analog photos of these afro-delta traditions, between 2000-2010 ... this release is huge, I pay homage to Samy Ben Redjeb for suceeding such a project! I hope one day Analog goes for French Guyana, Martinique & Guadeloupe vintage sounds. These CARIMBÓ-SIRIA & candomblé songs are FANTASTIC ! Chat-verre

Why do you love this album? Well, it is the quality of ALL the Analog Africa releases , the astonishing presentation- artwork, AWESOME booklets, the mastering, the music first of all and the feeling you connect with it and the artists involved. Due to not earning enough I changed from vinyl to CDs, but I am glad for the high quality downloads of the vinyl only releases that you are able to burn to disc. Together with a chosen few others AA is a greater than great label. Period. Markus Bader
