Today on Ecléctico you're listening to a collaboration between Colombian folk singer Nidia Góngora and British producer Will "Quantic" Holland. The latter has spent a lot of time living and making music in Cali, which is where he heard of and then met Góngora. This is their second project together.

You'll go deeper with an excerpt from and a link to a review by Ammar Kalia on The Guardian.


"Almas Conectadas" by Quantic & Nidia Góngora
2021 | Collaboration between British producer and Colombian folk singer-songwriter


Go deeper.
[Will "Quantic"] Holland’s gentle production layers polyrhythms, bowed strings and plucked melody, always providing ample space for [Nidia] Góngora’s voice to soar atop the musical foundations without being weighed down by their intricacies. It is a challenging interplay, but one the pair both pull off with effortless aplomb, giving these tales of lost souls at sea, drunken revelry and forlorn romances an ornamental polish without losing their sense of tradition and rooted authenticity.
