Los Espíritus

Los Espíritus

The blues era tradition of Buenos Aires has defined one of the rawest aspects of Latin American rock. It was there where Los Espíritus was born in 2010 under the leadership of Maxi Prietto. Their music has taken them to Peru, Mexico, Costa Rica, Chile, Uruguay and Colombia where they performed at Rock al Parque in 2017. Agua Ardiente is his latest work, which took the band on a tour to Spain where Mondosonoro spoke about influences: “El Kinto, from Uruguay, the folklore of Argentina as Atahualpa Yupanqui. Jimi Hendrix, The Zombies, Thirteenth Floor Elevators. The traditional blues of John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters and Howlin ‘Wolf.”
