The Chilean music scene is an undiscovered gem. How western music has infilterated the music consciousness is very strange. Just the the other day I heard The Smiths’ Girlfriend in a Coma while shopping in a supermarket, much to my amusement. There is also a quite vibrant underground scene. One of the highlights would be post rock outfit Animales Exóticos Desamparados, whose instrumental fusion is not to dissimilar to German band, Die Haut.
