For love. Of course.

Rosa is also a musician: violinist and producer, she is a member of the El Club de Toby and her cultural exchange with Annabelle is natural and immediate.
“We immediately joined the music, and over time he introduced me to some of the most incredible music, many great musicians,” Chvostek tells El Pice. “He added me to Carlos Cardinal’s Tangos, while we shared praise for bands like The Velvet Underground and Violent Fems, so we got a lot of meeting points. We had a common language from the beginning.
Before the cartel, before talking about velvet, before the roots, Chvostek heard Los Estomacos doing “compalache” in punk or post punk key. He listened to Leo Maslia and saw that he was “hilarious, critical, bombshell, weird.” And asked for the record Well matched De Ricagosa says he fell in love with his four guitars, comedy and scenes from contemporary life and “really”, that sound.

You recently released a version of “Dance Me to the End of Love” by Leonard Cohen, one of the best Canadian singer-songwriters. Do you recognize any connection between Canadian and Uruguayan music?
– I think Leonard Cohen is an iconic presence in Canada, just as Alfredo Giderosa is here. They both write incredibly deep lyrics that shed light on difficult truths and paint poems that can overcome difficulties, which connects us with the beauty of things. I think the traditions of writing that song are very strong in both places. In terms of music, it was interesting to find Manuch jazz in Uruguay, and then it was interesting to find my own community in Toronto sharing this musical language.
– How do you define Pearl string What do you mean at this point in your life?
–Pearl string It was the culmination of more than a decade of learning about Uruguayan music culture and experiencing music with Fernando. This post is different from previous recordings because it’s more collaborative on songwriting and rendering, and the collaboration helped make some of the original ideas I’ve collected bigger than I could have imagined. I wanted to connect more and more with the music world I witnessed, and Fernando was the perfect collaborator to do that. This album is the culmination of so many years of contact with him and Uruguay.
