Detailed Description
El Kinto began their brief but eventful life in music playing in the dark shadows at Orfeo Negro (Black Orpheus), a night club near the Portones de Carrasco in Montevideo, Uruguay. Inspired by the way Tropicalistas like Os Mutantes were transforming the pop music of Brazil, El Kinto embraced their own native music forms-but, as always, they went a step further: they integrated candombe and bossa nova into beat music, but they also added their own notion of "psicodelics." They experimented with newness in all its variety-new sounds from their guitars, new types of vocal delivery, new ways of striking the drums (with little brooms, with gavels or their hands). As one journalist noted in 1969, "El Kinto, directed by the brilliant Mateo, and amplified to the maximum... creates a frenzy of rhythmic music in which-with force and conviction-pure wave 'beat' is synthesized with the warmth of the African drums." The result of the group's tireless experiments is music which sounds fresh and engaging today. In a world dominated by the commercialization of everything-including (although it is difficult to comprehend)-the arts, all we can say is, thank god for El Kinto!
