[From Arts & Crafts] Most of the bands today lose their creative drive after four or five years of being together. Few are the acts that after almost a decade keep surprising each other and finding in their band a sanctuary beyond time, age or circumstance. This is the case of Chikita Violenta, a band that has united four friends to jam at least twice a week for over a decade. In 2005 a single email sufficed for Canadian producer Dave Newfeld to convey his interest in the project. The Stars and Suns Sessions studios in Canada received the band on three occasions to create The Stars and Suns Sessions (2007), a solid, timeless and powerful record that was well praised by both local media and international press. This sessions mark the beginning of a long and fruitful friendship with the members of Broken Social Scene, who collaborate on this material. After the release, Chikita Violenta had two nationwide tours and was invited to play the SXSW Music Festival for two years in a row. The band has consolidated as one of the live acts to follow. TRE3S is a near-perfect pop album that introduces not only a band to watch out for but also an entire country getting ready to take the independent music world by storm.
