March 13, 2014 - Cumbancha is pleased to announce that it will be releasing the next album from Afro-Latin superstar Ricardo Lemvo. The new album is entitled La Rumba SoYo and features Lemvo and his band Makina Loca's trademark blend of African and Latin grooves that has earned him a wide global following since he first started filling dance floors in the 1990s. La Rumba SoYo will be released in the United States and Canada on June 10, 2014 and will roll out to other territories around the world shortly thereafter.

Africa’s most inspirational band celebrates ten years since its first recording with its finest album to date. Libation’s “around-the-campfire” intimacy, honest soulfulness, and technical prowess reveal how far Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars have come while remaining true to their roots. Produced by Chris Velan and mixed by Iestyn Polson, known for his work with David Gray, Patti Smith, and David Bowie, Libation embodies the contagious joy, optimism in the face of struggle and love for their fellow man that has earned Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars a devoted following across the globe.

 

"It's as easy to fall in love with these guys as it was with the Buena Vista Social Club.” Newsweek


“Their music emanates a life-affirming positivity.” BBC

February 18, 2014 — 

The collaboration between a rapper/beatboxer/singer-songwriter from Syracuse, NY and an electrifying African kora sensation from Guinea pushes genre boundaries and earns raves. Driscoll and Kouyate blend hip-hop, spoken word, funk, and soulful, accessible rock with Afrobeat, reggae and irrepressible African grooves.

 

"A boundary-trampling high-octane hybrid in which the lightning fast electrified licks of
Kouyate are matched by the explosive energy of Driscoll's rapid fire rhyming."
- Songlines

 

"A gloriously accessible collision of styles. It's an unlikely collaboration that works, magnificently."
- The Guardian

The well-worn and often overblown expression "music is a common language" has never been more apropos in the case of Joe Driscoll & Sekou Kouyate. US-born, England-based Driscoll speaks no French and Kouyate, who hails from the West African country of Guinea, little English. When they were brought together at the Nuit Metis (Mixed Night) festival in Marseille, France in 2010 and given a week to produce a concert, music was the only way they could communicate.
