Congregacion Viene

Hello! This is my very first post here! I'm a fairly new member, so this may have been posted previously. I don't know much about psych-folk music, but I want to share with you this little one, which may or may not be psych-folk exactly, but you can tell me if it isn't and I can learn. Okay!

Congregacion is from Chile! Their music is in Spanish and it's very beautiful. Unfortunately, I don't have any of the lyrics or the translations, but even if you don't know Spanish you can feel it. The songs were all written by Antonio Smith, and I can't really find very much information about Antonio Smith or his music other than this.

This is the band, and what they play (I translated the instruments from Spanish, so I may be off on a few.)

Antonio Smith - vocals, guitar, megaphone, plectrófono (can't translate this)
Alejandro - guitar, harmonica, vocals
Alberto - bass, guitar, vocals
Baltasar - percussion, guitar, vocals
Carlos - flute, tambourine, percussion
Also with
Johan - vocals
Richy - bass
Grumpy - cello
Gino - cello
Eduardo - piano (Los Jaivas)
Gabriel - trutruca (Los Jaivas)
Julio - vocals (Amerindios)

The title of the one song that's all messed up in the title is called "El dulce espíritu de la soledad, ama la muerte hermano," I didn't want to go back to fix it! But otherwise it should be okay (please let me know if it isn't!)

Track Listing
1. Estrecha a tu hermano
2. Arrebol
3. Mentes prenadas de amor
4. Síntesis de la exitancia
5. El dulce espíritu de la soledad, ama la muerte hermano

7. Eclíptica

I hope you enjoy it. If you like this and if it is okay for this community, let me know and I might be able to upload some of the other work of Antonio Smith. Thank you!
