There’s a HUGE movement in my lovely Colombia about cumbia, and fusion and as I’ve said before we pay respect to the genre in a whole different level, compared to the rest of the planet.
One of those bands that normally don’t make it outside Colombia is PAPAYA REPUBLIC, they have a dope sound and in case you haven’t heard la mojarra electrica, cabuya, malalma, comadre araña, calambuco, etc.. well this band will give you a peek about the inner sounds in “la tierra del olvido”
(the forgotten land)
Papaya Republik – Breve by hombreranajorge
BREVE LA VUELTA by PAPAYA REPUBLIK
they’re doing street cumbia for a while now
