I don’t need to tell you that electronic music is pretty hot in Europe these days – but one foreign artist making her mark is La Yegros, a singer from Argentina.

Her tropical cocktail of Latin rhythms, heavy bass and poignant lyrics gathers fans wherever she lands on a busy touring schedule.

The Buenos Aires native recently moved from “the Paris of South America” to the real thing, seeking to capitalize on a wave of popularity in France.

Last week, Monocle’s Frederick Bernas caught up with her on a rare visit home.
