In the organizer's words:

Pedro Canale alias Chancha via Circuito is a symbol of the sonic unity of South America. His stage becomes a tailor-made experience to unfold his vast spectrum of downtempo, cumbia-style minimalism and Latin American beats.

He incorporates Brazilian rhythms, Paraguayan harps, Andean mysticism, folklore from the Argentinian pampas and - of course - cumbia.

Chancha Via Circuito is considered a cult artist in the most avant-garde circles of electronic music. This characteristic has led to him being featured in the program of festivals such as Mutek Montreal, Roskilde (Denmark), Sonar (Spain), Calvi on the Rocks (France) and Vive Latino (Mexico). He has also received attention and acclaim from renowned media outlets such as Pitchfork, NPR, BBC, KEXP, Radio3, Earmilk, MTV Iggy, Vice and The Fader.

His last album "La Estrella", released in November 2022, brought him on tour in Europe in May/June 2023, where he played with fellow DJs such as El Buho. The tour took him to Spain, Italy, Ireland, England, Germany, Austria, Hungary and the Netherlands.

The album moves between lush instrumental soundscapes, as in the first track "Dandeleon", and upbeat vocal pieces, all linked by Pedro's characteristic production style. The well-known Colombian-Canadian singer Lido Pimienta, who has often collaborated with Pedro, is a guest on the album. She sings on the track "Amor en Silencio" to syncopated xylophone chords. The Argentinian folk fusion trio Fémina continues the album's celestial theme in the song "Cometa", whose harmony vocals over percussion and xylophone chords create a link to themes such as spirituality, love, transience and nature.

His seductive formula has become an important reference for many artists in the Latin American electronic music scene. With the album "Rio Arriba" (2012), Chancha brings South American folklore to dance floors around the world and his iconic remix of José Larralde's "Quimey Neuquén" was selected for the TV series Breaking Bad.

"Amansara" (2014) was released by the Belgian record label Crammed Disc in Europe and Asia and by Wonderwheel Recordings in the USA and Oceania. In 2018, four years later, amidst remarkable global turmoil.

The highly anticipated album "Bienaventuranza" - a word that essentially means bliss - is full of his signature Andean instruments (think lots of flute and charango), the folkloric elements on this album merging fluidly with danceable and digestible electronic beats.

His dreamy streak continues with the "Cereminia" EP (2021) in collaboration with Luvi Torres, who contributes ancient and sacred-sounding vocals, as well as the "Al Sur" EP (2022) with up-and-coming Argentinian singer-songwriter Loli Molina.
