Tremor + Micaela Chauque
They present the single “Florcita de cardón” (Fértil Discos, 2022)
Now available on all digital platforms.

Tremor + Micaela Chauque present their first collaborative work, the consequence of a musical friendship that has lasted fifteen years. “Florcita de cardón” is the first single from an EP called Corazón de agua, whose release is expected in August, also through Fértil Discos.”Florcita de cardón” is the piece chosen as the opening of a series of releases in audio and video that will form the EP Corazón de agua. It is a record that summarizes the musical exchange that was born spontaneously in Tilcara in 2007. Tremor and Micaela Chauque met within the framework of an event that took place there. They wasted no time, they improvised a portable studio and began to record the first sparks of that immediate creativity. The famous song “Huella”, the first cut from the album Proa de Tremor (2014), is also a product of that big bang. The conjunction of the two musical entities enables the neutral ground of fusion, a space that supposes the hybrid sound that results from the practice. The EP Corazón de agua will then be a casual, spontaneous and celebratory edition of shared friendship and hours of rich exchange and musical exploration.

“Florcita de cardón”, the first single from the EP, is a version that proposes a reconstruction of the landscape of the original song by Gustavo Patiño, a modern huayno that Micaela recorded in Jallalla (2018). The delicate new arrangement of the piece has a playful intention that distances it from the Andean imaginary, contributing Eastern airs in the instrumental parts, which provides new meanings for the lyrics and transports Chauque’s song to other geographies.

Alex Musatov joins the traditional line-up of Tremor (Leo Martinelli, Camilo Carabajal and Gerardo Farez) on the strings of this EP. The mix is ​​by Andrés Oddone and the mastering by Sebastián Cordoves. The cover design is Flecha Volando.

Micaela Chauque is part of the new generation of musicians that breaks into popular music in this new millennium. She is a singer, aerophonist, composer and has a degree in Argentine Folklore. He currently resides and produces his music in Tilcara (Jujuy). It integrates various musical projects: Jallalla, Jallalla Warmi National Meeting of Women Artists, Tilcara Network of Musicians, among others. It proposes a repertoire focused on revaluing composers from Jujuy and other Andean regions. With original arrangements deepening the timbre, harmonic and interpretative resources maintaining the essence of Jujuy and Andean music. He made presentations at national festivals. Her album Jallalla received the 2019 Gardel Award for Best Female Artist Folklore Album. Micaela Chauque is currently recognized as an international NOA folklore artist.

Tremor is a pioneer project in experimentation with Argentine folklore music and digital production techniques. The substance of his proposal results from that combination of contemporary and traditional sounds. His works interwine folkloric elements and electronic textures that are embodied in blood, by adding a variety of acoustic instruments (such as charango, ronroco, bass drum, violin) to the sound palette. Electro-tribal malambos, glitch chacareras, sachas with gypsy melodies, and even IDM huaynos are nicknames that some of Tremor’s music could have. Leonardo Martinelli, (in production, guitar, charango and various other instruments) together with Gerardo Farez (keyboards and melodica) and Camilo Carabajal (bass drum) are its members.
