Another great band from Colombia, a music mix between Africa and South America to be part of Roskilde Fest this year from 30th June to 3rd July. La Makina Del Karibe, a Colombian music collective, but their primary guiding principle is, according to themselves, soukous, the hot kind of rumba that you particularly associate with Congo and Central Africa.
However, this is not a clear-cut tribute to the distant neighbors. In the course of five years, La Makina Del Karibe has spread a high pulse and party atmosphere at home by combining African sounds and percussion in a fun and schizophrenic blend of champeta, cumbia, punk and ska.
This is the sound of summer.
