Title: Aguas Frías
Release Date: April 14th, 2017
Catalog No: DP0011
Label: Discos Peligrosa
The first single and title track, Aguas Frías, is a psychedelic traditional cumbia that features serenading gaitas by master gaitero Elber Álvarez, from Sahagún, Córdoba. The polyrhythmic alegre, the dancing bassline on the upbeats, and the skanking guitar, with it’s clean tone, all illustrate the magical topography of Aguas Frías. Kiko physically and internally returns to his ancestral home to decompress from the anxieties of urban living. The video was filmed on location neighboring Kiko’s home in the mountains and captures the beautiful journey to El Picacho, the highest peak in Aguas Frías.
Kiko Villamizar takes on the responsibility as a defender of the water and Mother Earth with his new album. Recorded and mixed in Austin, Texas by Grammy award winning producer Adrian Quesada, Aguas Frías releases the 14th of April on Discos Peligrosa with tours scheduled in the USA, Central America, South America, and Europe throughout 2017.
