A Different Beat

A couple of weeks back I rashly promised to bring you some Venezuelan freakbeat. The time has come to confess: I don't have any. There may not even be such a thing.

I am however able to treat you to some Venezuelan Afrobeat, courtesy of the Tragavenao Orquesta Afrobeat (the clue is in the name). Both tracks come from their self-titled 2014 album, currently available on Bandcamp on a very generous "pay what you want" basis.

"Neguito" - Tragavenao Orquesta Afrobeat 

"Fourloko" - Tragavenao Orquesta Afrobeat 

Here are some freaks. Venezuelan + beat + freaks = promise kept, more or less.
