A Bluegrass Ditty By Way Of Uruguay
Uruguay belongs high up any list of locations for musical discovery. Nestled between Argentina and Brazil way down on the southern tip of the Americas, it spends way too much time in the shadows of its better-known neighbors.
But a closer listen reveals something for just about everyone: rockeros, sure, but also fans of hip-hop, folk-influenced downtempo music and singer-songwriters with distinct voices and stories to tell.
Fede Graña Y Los Prolijos even manage to reflect good old Americana — of the variety situated to our south and their north. Wherever it came from, though, it works.
