Phonica Records is extremely proud to unveil the next release on its Special Editions imprint; the stunning debut album ‘Vuduwave’ by Niños Indigo.
Niños Indigo is the alias of audiovisual artist Valeria Hernandez. Developed over the course of a month, the album was recorded in Hernandez’s home country of Chile and recorded in a single week, resulting in a flowing, organic yet otherwordly listening experience.
Valeria explains; “This record is a compilation of influences that have been inside me a long time... they keep coming back; Afro drums, Hindu instruments, Candombe, Psychedelia in South America. The rhythm of what surrounds me; the lake, the forest near where I live, the calm that surrounds it, the love of my friends and daughter. All of these feelings are what I like to put in my songs, a reminder to value the simple, to seize the resources that I have and to try and free myself of what’s on my mind.”
Originally released on digital and cassette label Discos Cetaceos in 2014, it’s a recording that truly deserves to be given a new lease of life on vinyl.
