    Llama Pop Presents: Winka Wayno Sound System & Vaya Futuro (Acoustic Set)

    Wed 28 Sep

    7:45 pm


    WINKA WAYNO SOUND SYSTEM: is a new project by Gregorio Fontén. The energetic melancholy of South America’s wayno and cumbia rhythms is combined with psychedelic electronics to create a ritualistic pop for the dance floor. His work has been described as one of ramshackle and unique songs, whose effect is hallucinatory, corrosive; both strange and beautiful.


    VAYA FUTURO: is formed by Luis Aguilar (vocals, guitar), Aldair Cerezo (guitar), Le Ros (bass), Armando Aguilar (Keyboards, vocals) and Miguel Ahuage (drums). They flirt with a great diversity of alternative genres, which strongly influenced their original sound: noise pop or melodic noise with hints of shoegaze and krautrock. Their influences run all the way from current experimental pop acts such as The Flaming Lips as well as the German counterculture of the 60’s passing by an endless number of sub genres in progressive and psychedelic rock.
