Maricel Ysasa

Every year, as soon as the weather turns warm our tastes automatically migrate to South America. Jorge Ben, Gilberto Gil, Marissa Monte, David Byrne's Rei Momo etc. So, when our eyes caught a random twitter from the ever-more reclusive and globally focused Vincent Moon about a South American folk artist, 17 year old Maricel Ysasa from Buenos Aires, we immediately clicked. While, this is not the type of music you're going to be blasting out of your speakers on a balmy 4th of July weekend - it's perfect for late night walks home on humid August nights or for any other moments of quiet summer retrospection. Of course, it's shot beautifully, and the music is haunting and equally gorgeous. We're trying to track down some more music for you guys, but for now - just enjoy the above.
