The musical group Los Corrientes consider that the lyrics of their songs contain “pure Guayaquilean wisdom”. This is because many of the terms used in the lyrics of their compositions are the pure and typical slang from Guayaquil, which obviously didn’t appear in the Royal Academy of the Spanish Language.
However, they are recognized by the Guayaquilean citizen, who enjoy the songs and smiles everytime they listen to them simply because they identified with the language and “popular traditions.”
This is the main concept of The Current, those born in 2010, without a certain style in their genre, then do a bit of pop, rock, salsa, or maybe ska. The band seeks to cover the different urban scenarios and project the port city through his music. They are convinced that society itself is the sole owner of the city art forging, it is they who inspire him.
They tell urban stories, social reality, and accompanied with casual slang “guaiac”. But are not empty words, the band seeks to create local awareness with real messages through real words, keys and not gimmicky. Your niche is Guayaquil
In 2012 began a national tour called “This I’ll give”, and prepare for the release of their first album in 2014, containing 12 tracks. On October 4, at 22:00, will perform at Beer House, a proposed urban music bar in downtown Guayaquil (Rocafuerte and Padre Aguirre).
Currently, the songs of The currents are available at www.soundcloud.com/loscorrientes, and can be downloaded free.
