A song for Latin America
With her vast artistic trajectory in projects focused on the sounds and musical traditional of Argentina’s northern indigenous communities, singer-songwriter Charo Bogarín emerges as LA CHARO. A solo project that sees the artist turn her gaze toward the broader sounds of Latin America.
LA CHARO explores, with her voice, the rhythms and musical languages of South America. Nourished by the vocal traditions of native women from Argentina’s indigenous communities, and by her own formal training as an opera singer, the artist brings with her a unique and powerful sound that is both ancient and modern.
LA CHARO's compositions recall a continent of great artists like Chabuca Granda and Violeta Parra. Such composition that, through unknown but historic songs from Latin American, bring with them memories of emblematic individuals like Frida Khalo and Diego de Ribera — telling tales of life and of love.
LA CHARO emerges to offer us her art and a woman's desire to spread a new sound throughout her native continent.
Singer-songwriter: She is the co-founder of Tonolec, an Argentine duo that has for over 15 years fused electronic music with the ancestral songs of regional indigenous communities.
