What an amazing slice of South American talent. Blue Dress in particular captures my heart and my head, repeating vividly in my mind as I wander through the world.
Favorite track: Magdalena - Blue Dress.
Surrounding Label is proud to present its first compilation, “Surrounding: South American Women in Electronic Music”. An album inspired by the new scene of independent female artists and electronic music producers from South America.
After about three months of collective work with each of the participants from different countries such as Argentina, Peru, Chile, Brazil and Colombia, alongside a special guest from Italy, we present a collection of seven previously unreleased works.
The compilation “Surrounding: South American Women in Electronic Music” is an initiative that aims to pay homage to contemporary female artists in this corner of the world under our concept and curation as a music label and to show that women have produced, and continue to produce, much of the most daring, beautiful and innovative music in the continent.
Our sincere desire with this project is to encourage the musical production in the South American territory. We firmly believe that we are experiencing one of the most creative moments in decades. We want to leave a mark that lasts over time as witnessed positive changes in our society and as part of our history.

What a wonderful surprise it was to hear the Cuban song "El Carretero" on an album of Senegalese music! I'm familiar with the song from a modern hiphop-ified version on Putumayo's "Latin Groove" CD but this older, more traditional recording is pretty special in its own right. There are so many other great songs here, too. Scott
