Kanaku Y El Tigre, album out May 19

Very cool cats, recently signed to Strut: "The newest artists to sign to Strut, Peruvian wandering folk duo Kanaku Y El Tigre, may just become the soundtrack to your [northern] summer. Their anthemic, hook laden album Quema Quema Quema ("Burn Burn Burn" in English) is an incredibly catchy collection of electronic tinged indie-folk in the vein of Manu Chao or Jose Gonzalez, and we're completely in love with it.

For a taste of the band's euphoric sound, take a look at their new music video for "Si Te Mueres MaƱana". The title translates in English to "If You Die Tomorrow," and the lyrics deliver a message of living life with no regrets. 

Fittingly, the video features youthful skateboarders gleefully speeding down the hills outside of Lima. Another advance track from the album, "Bubucelas," is available for free download.

Quema Quema Quema is the band's first international release, and comes out May 19th on Strut in association with Tiger's Milk.
