Francesca Ancarola is well renowned in Chile and has performed for the President & National Congress. Her discovery led to the creation of Petroglyph Records and the production of her North American debut album, “Sons of the Same Sun.” This critically acclaimed CD was followed by her “Lonquen” album, a tribute to Chilean music icon, Victor Jara which also received terrific reviews.
Marcelo Aedo has been part of two of Chile’s top Fusion bands, “Al Sur” and “Trifusion.” He is a Professor of Electric Bass at the SCD Music School in Santiago, and directs his own musical production company, WAMA. His album, Polosur Celeste, will not only delight the ear, but it will also soothe the soul.
Emilio Garcia is an exceptional guitarist and composer. His hard-driving blues rock style is beautifully accompanied by awesome musicians on keyboards, drums and bass. You will also glimpse Emilio's jazz and Latin flamenco potential. Emilio's burning electric guitar is prominent in his new album Ultrablues.
Great art is often born of great suffering, such as suffering caused by political oppression. The people of Chile suffered such oppression for 17 years under the dictatorship of General Pinochet. Today, with a Democratic government supporting the arts, there is a huge rebirth of music in Chile, offering the world a breath-taking array of talent. Years of forced silence are now broken in such stirring and beautiful ways, releasing songs that are born of suffering but rejoice in freedom.
Petroglyph Records’ musicians are the generation of talent that is leading their country in re-establishing this musical identity. Their work reflects influences from around the globe but also the indelible imprint of living in a brutal dictatorship. They are rediscovering the sounds and rhythms from the past and blending them with contemporary Jazz, Rock, Blues, World and Electronic music to create something uniquely Chilean.
