Two bands with similar origins came together to revert “El curruco”, a traditional Colombian song. Onda Vaga and Perotá Chingó recorded this version, which will be part of “Nuestros canciones”, the album that the first ones will be publishing on August 24.
Onda Vaga was formed in 2007 on the Uruguayan beaches of Cabo Polonio, Uruguay. Five years later, two childhood friends, Julia Ortiz and Dolores Aguirre, set out to spend the summer playing on the eastern beaches. In both cases, its members are Argentines who were on vacation in Uruguay.
“El curruco” has a video clip directed by Martin Levi, Rafael Nir, Tomás Curland and Ian Rafecas, with photography direction by Juan Peña.
“Our songs” will include 12 songs that accompanied the growth of Onda Vaga. He will have versions of songs by artists as dissimilar as Babasónicos, Xuxa, The Kinks and Tanguito. Many of these songs were covered by the band during their tours.
The album was recorded during this year in the group’s studio. German Cohen, singer and trombonist of the band, explained: “‘Our songs’ invites our fans to look through our window and discover how different styles coexist within Onda Vaga”.
“Nuestros canciones” has guest artists such as Perotá Chingó, Francisco, El Hombre (from Brazil) and Muerdo (from Spain). It will have topics in Spanish, Portuguese and English.
