Susana Baca : Cumbia behind the door

After a great show at the Jazz Cafe in London on 20th May, A very special  gig opening by Lokal band Lokandes, described by Susana Baca "an enjoyable listening experience and unique style", then opening the show with the finest tunes and  poetry making an spectacular live performance on stage by 3 musicians and her beautiful voice giving her style back in tour. Afrodiaspora new album remind the influence of Africa in Latin america  as she said a journey back to our roots.

We found one of the new tracks in  the album Afrodiaspora called "Detras de la Puerta"(Behind the door) is a cumbia written by the great Columbian singer/songwriter, Ivan Benavides (Bloque, Sidestepper, Carlos Vives) with lyrics that actually say something interesting. It is a song that could be about the experience of an immigrant traveling to the North, to the U.S. or maybe a song about a man wanting to get to know a woman a little better. The cumbia is a rhythm that has spread from Colombia to all of Latin America and especially in Peru. This song combines our Peruvian rhythms with the cumbia in an interesting mix.
