Mambanegra: Colombian Break Salsa
I’m absolutely buzzing about this one. Movimientos Records have just signed Mambanegra from Colombia last year and their LP is about to get released. Colombia’s two main musical heartbeats are cumbia and salsa. These guys represent the new wave of young Colombian upstart salseros. They call their style ‘Colombian Break salsa’ and it takes in various different influences along the way. One foot in the traditions and the other in the contemporary. That’s how I love my music. Expect to see them lighting up several UK festivals this summer.
