Angelica Garcia & Sinego – “Agua De Rosa – Rooftop Mix”
Angelica Garcia today released a new mix of “Agua de Rosa” featuring Sinego, a bilingual track showcasing the storytelling and charisma of her acclaimed new album, Cha Cha Palace, out now. Sinego—a rising Colombian/Mexican producer who has remixed tracks for Sofi Tukker & many others—re-imagines the original’s Latin rhythms and influences through genres like low-tempo and Future Bass. “‘Agua de Rosa’ is a song that addresses cross-cultural misunderstanding from the perspective of an ancestral voice in the spirit world,” says Garcia. “Several first and second generation people struggle with the clash of the cultures that raised them. It meant a lot to me that Sinego collaborated on this song with me. I appreciate looking at the song through his lens. He gave it a new atmosphere and put it in a world that encompasses both of our backgrounds.”
Sinego says about the collaboration:
Latin America was built on the “tropicalization” of foreign cultures like catholicism and afro -american religions, for example in Colombia we have one of the few representations of the virgin as a black person (the Black Virgin of Monserrate). For me Agua de Rosa is the perfect extrapolation of this painful and diverse process in our region; it´s a re-imagination of foreign cultures with genres like low-tempo and Future Bass through the look of latin rhythms and experiences from a younger generation (Angelica and me).
