San Pedro

A 1 track tropicalia single (3m 2s) — released September 21st 2023 on Mais Um

Círculo Radiante is the fifth studio album Argentine folk/experimental artist Soema Montenegro.

A sonic ode to Latin American sounds, landscapes and people, Circulo Radiante is a remarkable evolution of Montenegro's work, coupling the modernity of electro-instrumentalisation with her own raw, ancestral approach to composition. Working alongside producer Leo Martinelli (Tremor), an artist who has ingeniously connected Latin American folk and modern electronica, Círculo Radiante reveals a new chapter to Montenegro's writing capabilities and vocal mastery, yet never betrays her innate connection to land, place, and people.

Second single "San Pedro" is a celebration of carnival, told from the perspective of an innocent narrator, tempted to dance with the devil. The plucked charango strings of the verse are borrowed from the Huyano traditions of the Altiplano indigenous, who embrace carnival as a time of unrestrained release - a hedonistic climax is achieved through trills of ecstatic release. "Carnival is when everything is allowed, an uncontrolled time when the spirits are cleansed. I think it's necessary to disappear to be able to re-appear," she explains.
