Federico Aubele Live!
"Brings Nostalgia plus a warm spanish guitar to his cool electronica" - LA TIMES
“The most forward-thinking and experimental artist to capture the sound of his homeland’s cultural and symbolic geography” – iTunes
Federico Aubele’s longings for Buenos Aires and South America as a whole, set the tone for his music. He notes that although each country has its own, sometimes brutal, history, The Americas possess a unique concoction of people: indigenous populations, former slaves, and constant waves of immigrants from every part of the world.
On his records, one might hear guitars, the bandoneon, and horns that play out Latin rhythms. There are tango influences, a touch of bolero, reggae/dub bass lines, hip-hop beats, and electronic sounds . Through it all, the images he evokes through the music on his albums and in his live shows are about memories and a longing for more familiar confines.
Aubele says, “Life takes a different shape when you are living abroad. Your relationship becomes your country, your memories weigh on you in different and unpredictable ways, you long for moments that are frozen in time and can’t be recaptured, it’s all very strange. Then when your relationship ends you realize, ‘What am I doing here?’ I just want to go back home.”
