Karen y los Remedios, a music project based in Mexico City, seeks to elevate and redefine cumbia, while staying true to its timeless essence for a new generation.
The trio’s debut album, Silencio, is a unique blend of various genres such as cumbia, lo-fi, dream pop, salsa, and electro pop, written during the pandemic lockdown.
“Mi Gran Dolor,” the first single from the album, and its music video emphasise the importance of self-protection in relationships, avoiding blindly accepting everything from one’s partner. The video was filmed in Guanajuato, a town in Central Mexico known for its silver mining history, andd features a metal heart buried in the forest, symbolising the ability to overcome life’s hardships.
Silencio will be released by ZZK Records on September 8th, 2023.
