After a great show at the Jazz Cafe in London on 20th May, A very special gig opening by Lokal band Lokandes, described 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.
