Chancha Via Circuito

Chancha via Circuito has become a symbol of sonic unity across the continent, his stage becomes a custom-made experience to deploy his massive array of downtempo, cumbia-style minimalism and Latin American beats.

Pedro Canale alias Chancha Via Circuito processes Brazil rhythms, Paraguayan harps, Andean mystic, folklore from the Argentinian Pampa and - of course - cumbia. This seductive formula became a key reference for many artists of the Latin American electronic music scene. With the album Rio Arriba Chancha brings South American folklore to the dancefloors across the world. His iconic remix of José Larralde’s "Quimey Neuquén" was chosen for the TV series Breaking Bad.
Pedro Canale is regarded as a cult artist for the most avant-garde electronic music circles. This characteristic has led him to be part of the program of bold events such as Mutek Montreal. He also played in festivals like Roskilde (Denmark), Sonar (Spain), Calvi on the Rocks (France) and Vive Latino (México). Besides, he has gotten the attention and applause of prestigious media like Pitchfork, NPR, BBC, KEXP, Radio3, Earmilk, MTV Iggy, Vice, and The Fader.


The record Amansara, released by the Belgian record label Crammed Disc in Europe and Asia, and by Wonderwheel Recordings in the US and Oceania. In 2018, four years later, in the midst of notable global turbulence, Chancha Via Circuito brought us his highly anticipated album Bienaventuranza - a word that essentially means bliss. Replete with his signature touches of Andean instruments (think lots of flute and charango), the folkloric elements on this album blend fluidly with danceable and digestible electronic beats.


His dreamy streak continues with the Cereminia EP (2021) in collaboration with Luvi Torres who brings ancestorial and sacred sounding vocals as well as the Al Sur EP (2022) with the upcoming Argentinian singer songwriter Loli Molina.
