Buenos Aires’ Tremor fuse the indigenous sounds of the Andes with electronic grooves and rock-like riffs and attitude into a potent combination. Composer Leonardo Martinelli is the heart of the group and his background in creating musical scores for film and theatre plays out in the group’s theatrical presentation and ambitious musical scope. Tremor had the honor of being selected to appear at this year’s WOMEX in Copenhagen in October and they have a new record planned for the future, of which this video “Tarkas” will give you a preview of coming attractions. The video was filmed back in June in Brooklyn during a tour to the US and is named after the type of flutes played in the song.
