QOQEQA is set to release his debut album ‘AxuxA’ on February 19 2021. It will be the first release on Dengue Dengue Dengue’s new imprint Kebrada.

QOQEQA, pronounced “kwo kwe kwa”, is the moniker of Daniel Valle-Riestra, a Latinx producer based in Peru.

‘AxuxA’ explores Valle-Riestra’s Afro-Latinx and Andean roots through earthy polyrhythms and airy melodies.
