"Soy Selva" (translated as "I'm Jungle"), produced with London native producer The Busy Twist, is about the ancient people of Colombia, their traditions, their relations with mother nature, universal respect and ritual dancing.
With the additional featuring of Ghanaian singer Zongo Abongo on "Dagbani Dance", things have definitely come full circle for this new EP, involving three continents in this innovative musical adventure.
Feel the gaitas, marimbas, and percussions of the Caribbean Coast of Colombia, the enchanting voices and drums of Africa, and the powerful electronic beats from the UK bass music scene; a tremendously infectious dance machine, opening a new era to the Afro-Colombian fusion of styles.
"A journey to the rhythmic Afro-Caribbean roots of Colombia fuelled by the hypnotic power of African house beats" - Sounds and Colours.
"The members of Ghetto Kumbe fuse traditional Afro-Colombian percussion with intense electronic beats and samples. They have a particularly strong band aesthetic: neon tribal masks and outfits are a particular standout of their intense live show" - theculturetrip.com
