With super-ambitious arrangements and grooves from all corners of the globe, Numasbala brings a joyous, fun, freedom-loving spirit to the dancefloor. Fabio Montenegro – Bass / Voice (Colombia), Felipe Piedrahita – Guitar / voice (Colombia) and Javier Samayoa – Hammond B3 / Keys / voice (Guatemala) joined me at WKCR.
Juan Ospina of M.A.KU. Soundsystem joined me on the radio last night.
M.A.K.U. is an exciting and eclectic band which hails mostly from Colombia. On stage MA.K.U juxtaposes traditional Colombian percussion, drum-set, synthesizers, electric base, guitar and sizzling horns, creating an explosive performance filled with unshakable grooves. Lyrically M.A.K.U talks about the realities of everyday people, encompassing love, hardships, culture, and the immigrant experience, but with a positive, spiritual and sometimes humorous spin.
