LP version. La Yegros is a native of Buenos Aires, and her parents are from Misiones, a province in the North East that draws its language from between Brazil and Paraguay. In this enclave, the porous borders of which lets foreign rhythms seep in, people play and dance to chamamé (a mixture of polka and Guarani music), carnavalito, and sways their hips to Columbian cumbia. These genres, bearing the hues of the Andean folklores, have then been put through the mill of Jamaican dancehall and electronic productions, thus composing a cocktail which recipe only La Yegros holds the rights. Thus, having grown up in the suburbs of a cosmopolitan city, imbued with the rural traditions of the country, and based today between France and Argentina, La Yegros does not cheat with her identity, which is as composite as her music is. This sincerity can be found in the songs in Suelta, most of which she has written both the lyrics and the music to, drawing her inspiration from considerations that are in turn intimate and social, exalting the role of women: "Tenemos Voz" ("We Have A Voice"), she sings with the British MC Soom T. La Yegros frees her high-tension temperament throughout the whole of Suelta, all the more so since the album presents original colors, while continuing its exploration of Northern folklores.
