"Lakou Mizik’s debut is a passionate tribute to the people and culture of Haiti. Formed in the aftermath of the country’s 2010 earthquake, the collective deliver a project of celebration and hope." - Songlines
“If this is what Brazil’s electronic age sounds like I’m all for it.”
– World Music Central
"Blending hypnotic, downtempo grooves with ethereal vocals (in both Portuguese and English) and occasional splashes of guitar, Maita creates a shimmering soundscape that is at once of Brazil and the world on her second album."

"The second album from the rapper, beatboxer and songwriter from Syracuse, New York and the Guinean kora virtuoso is built around smartly sculpted arrangements on fully-developed new songs. The key lies not in the glorious collision of two contrasting cultures but how seamlessly they are intertwined in a common musical language.”
Joe Driscoll has gained fame over the last decade for his unique blend of folk, funk and hip-hop. Sekou Kouyate, from Guinea, is one of the most innovative and virtuosic players of the kora, the 21-stringed West African harp. When these two seemingly disparate artistic forces are combined, an incendiary musical reaction takes place.
Joe Driscoll & Sekou Kouyate’s electrifying second album, Monistic Theory, brings together two musicians from vastly different backgrounds in search of the commonalities that are uniquely revealed by artistic expression.
Cumbancha artists are touring all over the world in 2016.
Fans waiting impatiently for Maita's second album to be finished might have felt like they were in that classic ketchup commercial…the one where the song "Anticipation" plays as the ketchup makes its way oh so slowly down the interior of the bottle. The wait is finally over, and it has definitely been worth it. Fio da Memória, which means "Thread of Memory" in Portuguese, will be released September 23rd on Cumbancha. The album bridges sultry downtempo electronica and Brazilian popular music to boldly redefine not only Luísa's personal style, but also the soundscape of modern Brazil.
Idan Raichel comes full circle and goes back to basics on his intimate new album, At the Edge of the Beginning. An introspective work, consisting of mostly gentle, personal songs with unassuming melodies and arrangements, the album reflects on the cycles of life, human connections and starting anew.
