MAY 2018

Cumbia Chicharra – Hijo de Tigre (L'Autre Distribution)

These Latin Frenchmen are a knack at crossing over Latin sounds, mostly Colombian cumbia with sounds from the Mediterranean, afrobeat, funk and dub. Generous and explosive, their music is powered by a large orchestra featuring horns, percussions, guitars, accordion, keyboards and two complementary singers. Their third album 'Hijo de Tigre' is a masterpiece of cumbia fusion "made in Marseille": dynamic, urban, métissé! Sounds from Colombia and the Caribbean mixed with cosmopolitan echoes of the Mediterranean city.
