Pedro Canale, better known as his stage name Chancha Vía Circuito is a producer, DJ/remixer and composer, from Greater Buenos Aires, Argentina.[1] 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.[2]


Exploring various Latin American musical influences, including folklore music, reggae, cumbia sonidera, Colombian cumbia and Peruvian cumbia, Chancha Vía Circuito has been producing instrumental musics by fusing electronic music with acoustic instruments and voices since 2005.[1]

Since 2010 Chancha Vía Circuito is one of the favorite artists of NPR's Alt.Latino.[3][4][5][6]
