BALTHVS, the Bogota, Colombia based psychedelic funk trio formed in the countryside while the group waited out the 2020 pandemic. The band was escaping the city during uncertain times and according to guitarist and vocalist, Balthazar Aguirre “we wanted the music to meld with the peaceful environment surrounding us at that moment”.
The band is notable for their energetic performances, improvisation and connectivity to their ever growing audience with their genre-defying sound blends Cumbia, surf rock, funk and Turkish musical influences.
BALTHVS have sparked a counter culture revolution in their home country with music comprised of lyrics in English, Spanish and plenty of instrumentals that meld mysticism and psychedelics. “Colombia is very psychedelic, there's plenty of availability and a lot of traditional medicine involving entheogens and plant medicine around.” The result is a captivating sonic tapestry that transcends conventional boundaries, captivating listeners with its multifaceted influences.
Since their inception, the band has embarked on a prolific creative and touring journey, releasing an impressive catalog featuring over 34 singles and 3 full-length albums. Their music has resonated globally, amassing over 6.8 million streams worldwide, establishing BALTHVS as a formidable presence in the music industry and with an upcoming new full length LP, the band is poised for even greater heights.
