Abuela - Sapa Video!

ABUELA is collaborative project between the ever-evolving sound & light production team of Evan 'E. Vax' Mast (Ratatat, Jay-Z) and the White Wizard (White Flight). The duo began work on the ABUELA project high up in the Andes Mountains within the greater matrix of the 'Sacred Valley of the Inka' in southern Peru. Housed in an adobe cabin and utilizing a simple, portable studio set-up, the producers were encouraged by their minimal toolkit to draw inspiration for the music directly from the mountains, rivers, and inhabitants of the valley (both seen and unseen) rather than sinking into the familiar comforts of a modern recording studio. New 7" coming out Feb 4th on CanvasClub.
