Today’s Tune: ‘Trocitos de Madera’ by La Yegros

La Yegro’s powerful and hypnotic ‘Trocitos de Madera’ is the perfect fusion of South American folk music and the innovative sounds coming from Buenos Aires. “I was brought up with the spirit of folklore, and my father carried a radio around all day and night… I was always surrounded by music,” says La Yegros, “So writing, for me, is inspired by a wide array of sounds and styles, and narratives.

‘Trocitos de Madera’ appears on the album Viene de Mi by La Yegros and is out now via Waxploitation Records.
