Las Rubias del Norte were the very first group to ever play barbès, back in 2002, and they are back after a three year slumber.
Their sound is a re-invention, a nostalgic throwback to a time and place mostly imagined where Peruvian waltzes, Andean huaynos and Cuban Guajiras mix with French opera, Cowboy tunes and Bollywood classics. The result plays like a dreamy soundtrack with classical harmonies set to a Latin beat. All three of their albums are available on Barbès Records, including Ziguala, their attempt at reimagining what a pop record would sound like had the global Latin influence - which was so prevalent until the early 60's - had continued its course without interruption. Expect forays into Bollywood, Sicilian songs, Kurt Weill and Yéyé.
Featuring Allyssa Lamb - vocals & keyboards; Emily Hurst - vocals; Taylor Bregren-Chrisman - bass; Olivier Conan - cuatro; Greg Stare - percussion; Giancarlo Vulcano - guitar. 

"... elegant, finely wrought Latin-influenced songs. Las Rubias del Norte compress big-band compositions into sparkling gems." The New Yorker.
