On july 21 'El tintero' hit the first spot!!! REVIEWS The unique style developed by Pat y Chaco is spectacular!!! Their sound is rich, fresh and smooth and their lyrics are dreamy and surrealistic. Paty´s voice is sometimes sweet and sometimes aggressive while Chaco´s guitar shows a unique style with very contrasting influences from Colombian native drums to Jimi Hendrix to Joe Pass. Gabriel Rondon (Guitarrist and arranger- One of the Jazz pioneers in Colombia with a five decades career) An amazing performance by a beautiful voice that knows and feels every single word she sings, joined by an instrument that creates moods, improvises and mixes extraordinary guitar techniques. Manuel Bernal Martinez (Musical Investigator and University professor) The musical journey through Pat Y Chaco album Satyagraha sets different moods, styles, musical genres and distant cultures. Collaborations from Colombian top musicians such as jazz pioneers Antonio Arnedo and Gabriel Rondon and traditional Tambora singer Martina Camargo get Pat y Chaco sound even more interesting.
