TERROR CACTUS - is the digital folklore and psychedelic electro-cumbia project of Martín Selasco. Born in Buenos Aires and raised in Miami, the Seattle-based producer draws from wide variety of Latin-American influences in his productions including Argentine folk, Peruvian chicha, and Colombian cumbia. These influences are woven into hypnotic electronic beats featuring psychedelic guitars, dub lasers, and field recordings.
BALSA DE FUEGO (Raft of Fire) mixes Caribbean Cumbia,  Joropo from the Colombo-Venezuelan plains (los Llanos);  Currulao from the Colombo-Ecuadorian Pacific coast and  North American jazz.
This new project is led by Colombian composer Juan Sebastian Monsalve whose influential band Curupira, is one of the originators of the new Bogota scene.
