5 Music Mixes That Capture The Spirit of Traveling

El Búho

“Born in the rolling hills of northern England, El Búho found his musical home in the forests, rivers & mountains of Latin America. His sounds blends together the rhythms, traditions and melodies of Latin American folk with the organic sound of waterfalls, birdsongs, crackling leaves and modern electronic music. The result is a dreamy, deep, melodic journey that entrances as much through headphones as it does on the dancefloor.”

“Mose spends much of his time in Guatemala where cacao ceremonies, kirtan, and ecstatic dance have had a major influence on his productions and DJ style. It is here on Lake Atitlan that he founded the weekly SunSet Cacao Dances where members of the community have the opportunity to journey deep into dance in a container of deep intention free of alcohol. Having been nomadic since 2011, he has developed a sound all his own through interaction with cultures from around the world. He finds a way to fuse the organic elements of tribal traditions with modern production techniques in order to create an entrancing journey for both relaxed listeners and those eager to move their bodies.”

Chancha Vía Circuito

“Pedro Canale, better known as his stage name Chancha Vía Circuito is a producer, DJ/remixer and composer, from Greater Buenos Aires, Argentina. Fusion of electronic music and cumbia is key factor of Chancha Vìa Circuito’s music. He explores the minimal side of digital cumbia with inspiration from Afro-dance, murgas, minimal dub, IDM, and downtempo. Computer bleeps share sonic space with folkloric chant. Candombe drums are accompanied by the sample of a machete splicing the air and a vocal line of indigenous bebop is layered over hints of dub.”

“The time that we live in today, time in the awareness of the Pachamama (Mother Earth) and consciousness of human beings and all living creatures, it expands. The time has come to our original connection with the source of the universe awake.This magnetic connection that is in motion, magical and powerful in its root with the earth and the deep knowledge of our ancestors.
