Live Video, El Sonido

The psych- and Tropicalia-inflected rock of Boogarins is so intriguing that when their earliest recordings had been picked up by music fans all over the globe, in early 2013, the band hadn't even played any gigs. Fortunately, becoming a live band only just shortly afterwards didn't prevent the Goiânia, Brazil, quartet from quickly adapting to an onstage unit, which is showcased in this recent session on KEXP's Latin music show, El Sonido, with DJ Chilly. Recorded during the band's first trip to Seattle, Boogarins play songs from their 2015 sophomore effort, Manual, and discuss what it's like to leave Brazil for the first time to play eleven shows at SXSW.
