"FIFBA 2012- 30,000 people attended yesterday in the woods of La Plata"

"La Yegros followed on the Alternative Music Stage, an explosive woman whose music is very contemporary. While it may have been difficult define by genre, it was a perfect-sounding performance with the promise of a great career ahead. It seemed as though the audience felt the same way by the power of their applause and warmth in which they received her performance. " - Pablo Layus

"Promising start for the Buenos Aires Folklore Festival"

"...La Yegros, a singer from the province of Buenos Aires with an emotional sound and coastal roots. She embodied a strange and explosive mixture that ranged from dub to chamamé to funky rap and furiously danceable cumbia.

La Yegros, who has only released an EP and is preparing her full length debut album, performed with a very powerful band of electric guitars, electronics, bass, keyboards and accordion, in which she shines as a “front-woman” of the highest degree, which is very rare in Argentina. Overflowing sensuality that recalls the great Lila Downs, she unites many different genres with her music.” - Telam TV

"The Buenos Aires International Folk Festival in the woods of La Plata had a successful first day"

"Then people moved back to the Alternative Music Stage where the luscious La Yegros, clad in a tight striped dress, pink fishnet stockings and feather headdress, surprised the audience with her combination of coastal folk and electronic music. Supported by a solid band (the talented Gaby Kerpel included) and with her very distinct voice, she transformed the forest into a telluric rave." - Folklore Club TV

"Let's sing in the woods"

"Before the opening ceremonies were finished, La Yegros performed on the Alternative Music Stage, projecting all of her sensuality. A mulata singer who not only can sing, La Yegros also knows how to keep the audience in her back pocket, getting the crowd riled up and dancing." - Melografias

"La Yegros en Alquimia!"

We share the night with La Yegros, an artist and with wild overwhelming power that has blown us away, finishing the year in style with original sounds. - Alquimia Radio

"The multi-faceted and restless Gaby Kerpel"

La Yegros, the voice that has accompanied him since '98 (with Doma, a production of De La Guarda), has been preparing her solo album together with Gaby for the past three years: a cross between cumbia, hip hop, chamamé and electronics. - Clarín

"La Yegros, “Trocitos” MP3"

We’ve been waiting for the La Yegros since we saw her destroy NY Tropical a few months back… Her voice is amazing: somehow she conveys a raw urgency while sounding completely relaxed and conversational... So anyway, when are we all moving to Buenos Aires?
- The Fader

"Meet La Yegros: Zizek's First Lady"

La Yegros is not necessarily new to the game. She had been involved in Buenos Aires avant-guard music scene since the late ’90s before she discovered the then-emerging ñu-cumbia movement invited by local pioneer Dick El Demasiado (a Dutch artist who uncovered cumbia’s hidden potential while living in Argentina and started the first experimental electronic cumbia club in the country’s capital, before ZZK was even a dream in the heads of El-G and Villa Diamante). - Remezcla

"Adiós 2011: 8 Songs To Celebrate The End Of The Year"

"A sick cumbia mixed with these beats and vocals, kind of an Arabic cumbia, it's cool..this is great I like it..." - NPR's Alt Latino

"La Yegros Brings Female Touch To Argentina’s Nu-Cumbia Scene"

It’s a refreshingly rootsy departure from the hyper-digital ZZK norm, making us excited about what else this talented lady will bring to the group’s table next. - MTV Iggy

La Yegros’s edgy voice electrifies her coastal roots, blasting ancient chamames into the future. Recognized by MTV Iggy as “bringing a female touch to Argentina’s nu-cumbia scene”, La Yegros is the first female on the renowned ZZK Records roster, bringing her feminine sass and raw energy to the world music and global bass scene. 

La Yegros combines traditional chamames from the jungles of Argentina’s northeast, music still relatively undiscovered by the global ear, with a urban edge influenced by her upbringing in cosmopolitan Buenos Aires making it impossible for audiences all over the world to refrain from dancing. Although she is about to release her solo debut LP, La Yegros isn’t exactly new to the scene. She has performed on major stages worldwide as a part of ZZK showcases, including Central Park Summerstage and Roskilde Festival in Demark, having made her professional debut in 1998 with the Argentine production of De La Guarda in front of 15,000 people. 

Her solo project is produced by Gaby Kerpel aka King Coya, one of Argentina’s most treasured composers, having written the music for the international productions of Fuerza Bruta and De La Guarda. Both La Yegros and King Coya partipate in the band Terraplén, produced by two time Oscar winning composer Gustavo Santaolalla. With her highly anticipated solo album, Viene de Mi, still waiting in the wings (to be released in late summer 2012) she has already caught the eyes of NPR, MTV, and the Fader among others anxiously awaiting her debut. 

Trailblazing with chamames and cumbias of her childhood across the globe while breaking through a male dominated scene with an album that is refreshingly rootsy yet wildly contagious, La Yegros is a force to be reckoned with in 2012.
