La Yegros, Viene De Mi (Waxploitation Records/ ZZK)


Cumbia’s elastic swing makes it a difficult fit with programmed beats.

But Argentinian newcomer La Yegros gets it right, as she does her contemporary take on tango. Her precise, even strident, vocals effortlessly dominate proceedings, and the presence of the accordion – and the even humbler melodica – ensure that, while there’s an embracing of urban hip-hop brutalism, the music retains a quirky humanity and good humour. Fun and funky.
