Pedro Canale, better known as his stage name Chancha Vía Circuito is a producer, DJ/remixer and composer, from Greater Buenos Aires, Argentina. Fusion of electronic music and cumbia is key factor of Chancha Vía Circuito's music. He explores the minimal side of digital cumbia with inspiration from Afro-dance, murgas, minimal dub, IDM, and downtempo. Computer bleeps share sonic space with folkloric chant. Candombe drums are accompanied by the sample of a machete splicing the air and a vocal line of indigenous bebop is layered over hints of dub.
Canale launched an EP "Bienaventuranza remixes", with collaborations from Nicola Cruz, El Búho, Rafael Aragon and Baiuca. He released an album in December 2018 with his project “Pino Europeo”, in collaboration accordion player Chango Spasiuk.
