Mákina Kandela – Mákina Kandela (self-released)

makinakandela.inddMusicians from Colombia, Chile, & Mexico who joined forces to share their love of the authentic music of the Caribbean coast of Colombia, including cumbia, merengue, puya and porro. They embrace traditional instruments like gaita hembra & gaita macho (indigenous flutes), maracas, & primitive drums, but they also rock horns & guitar and add entertaining vocals. Excellent music, but little-known outside of Colombia.  A WRUV exclusive, at least for now.
