Out of the minds of Javier Zuker, Fabian Picciano and Leonardo Lopatin, sprouted Poncho. No, they did not design a clothing garment, but created an electric rock band that emerged from the indie scene in Buenos Aires. The Argentinean trio recently released their newest album Ponchototal, produced by British DJ Justin Robertson, who also lent his vocal talents on a couple of songs. The album also features the voices of Luis Alberto Spinetta, one of Argentina’s best-known rockers, and Banda de Turistas, who are the lead vocals for Poncho’s song “Kansas”.
Tradition takes a psychedelic turn in Poncho’s “Kansas” new music video. The Ekeko, the Latin American god of prosperity, is bizarrely modernized with a biker outfit, complete with jet-black boots and leather gloves as he rides on a motorcycle leaving a magical cloud of smoke through the Argentine desert. He ends his journey with an amazingly quirky little dance following his exit into the water. Check out the video to see where the traditional icon is headed. Watch the video here:
