UCR #013

December 21, 2015



Once upon a time, there was a 13 ­ year old boy who fell in love at first sight with an old Brazilian violao. That boy was Salvador Araguaya, Urban Cosmonaut Radio podcaster #13 in our trip through the musicverse.
His first guitar triggered a lifelong musical adventure, spending 7 years exploring different genres, playing in many bands and nurturing a love for ancestral black music of northeastern Brazil. Inevitably, he was enchanted by Voodoohop’s fusion of electronic and Brazilian sounds
and eventually started making music in the beginning of 2015.
Since then, Salvador Araguaya has moved and swayed the dancefloors with his DJ sets at many Sonido Tropico (@sonidotropico) parties. His recent own productions ­ like “Cotovelo de Serra” on Caballito have given us a glimpse of the start of his musical evolution. His own tracks are infused with digital cumbia elements and traces of folk and ethnic deep house ­ like in “Mora na Filosofia (Caetano Veloso)” ­as well as in this mixtape that you’re about to hear.
Once upon a time, there was an Urban Cosmonaut who guided us on our Hitchhike Through the Galaxy. And we all lived happily ever after.
