The Málaga-based duo Cosmic Wacho is formed by the Spanish Alejandro Domínguez (Aless) and the Argentinian Franco Felice. Born in the midst of confinement (2020) and with a background far removed from tropical roots, the two producers and musicians come together to form a project that serves as a bridge between Latin sonorities and the urban avant-garde. Cumbia, as the favourite daughter of Latin American rhythms, serves as a mother ship to transport Cosmic Wacho’s lyrical and sonic conceptual mix that recreates a musical universe unheard of on the current scene.

Like immersing yourself in a bubble bath in the middle of a tropical sea. This is the fantastic and brand new eponymous debut album by Cosmic Wacho, that fabulous Spanish-Argentine duo who have made Latin their vocation and urban their devotion. Effervescent and relaxing, hypnotic and vibrant. In their sound we find that musical and psychedelic jungle in whose fauna live cumbia, bachata and calypso, flirting with trap, hip hop and pop.

Almost as if the Meridian Brothers were going out for tequila with C Tangana, or as if Kevin Johansen were tangling with Quantic & Flowering Inferno. An invitation to enter a unique world full of sonic sensibilities in which Cosmic Wacho are our best guides. In 2022, Cosmic Wacho, in a state of grace, consolidated their status as the revelation band of the season. This is attested to by their performances at events of the calibre of BIME, Cooltural Fest and Cala Mijas, among many others, where they have boasted that unique sound mix that draws equally from the most ancestral tradition and the most radical modernity.
