Ancestral reverence refracted through a cumbia lens, Sávila is yet another Portland supergroup boasting the talents of adventurous guitarist Fabi Reyna; master drummer and percussionist Papi Fimbres; and vocalist Brisa Gonzalez. Taking their name from the Spanish word for aloe vera, Sávila echoes the sacred plant’s healing properties through ritualistic cuts melding pre-Hispanic percussion with hypnotic nightclub atmospheres. Spend some time with their latest EP Mayahuel, which is rooted in sonic traditions from Oaxaca, including native percussive instruments and field recordings that make the record all the more immersive.
