Buenos-Aires, the Argentine capital, is home to about three million people. If you add its suburbs, the figure rises to fifteen million souls. These porteños, as they are called, are known worldwide for tango and to a lesser extent for cumbia villera and national rock. A vast port that has seen successive waves of immigrants, the metropolis has managed to mix various musical influences brought by these new arrivals. Thus, Europe, the United States but also other South American countries and the Caribbean are a source of inspiration for Argentine musicians.
Bizarrap, the most prominent producer of the moment, continues his fabulous success with the release of each of his "Music Sessions" during which he invites talented MCs. For this new episode he brought in Tiago PZK, rising star of the Argentinean reggaeton/trap scene, who demonstrates his skills in singing as well as in rap. It’s icing on the cake to have these two artists on a track with several rhythm changes and efficient hooks.
The trap scene in Buenos Aires is very dynamic and regularly sees new talents emerge. They bring a creative and more underground touch to a current of rap that has become very mainstream. Among these young artists worth mentioning are LARA91K on the dreamy "Me Perdí", Dillom with a pen as original as ever on "La Primera" and Taichu who at the age of twenty already has an impressive flow.
Diosque shares with us a tormented facet of his personality in "Equilibrio", adding a zest of cumbia to this love lament. Pablo Ignacio Ferreira transmits in "El Vacío" almost two years of pandemic trauma through an introspective and cinematic journey punctuated by delicious piano notes. Finally, the prolific singer and composer Carolina Zac offers an ethereal interpretation of Carola Bony's excellent post-punk song "No Soy De Nadie", a true call to meditation.
