I just came back from La Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta (Colombia), look it up, beautiful and incredibly magical place, home to indigenous groups, the nest for cumbia, the vegetation, the birds, the weather, the ocean… in that setting my friend Christian Castagno has his incredible La Kaya Studio, there, we had the opportunity to get together and let our minds and creativity flow.
From the last session at La Kaya, this song El Ritmo was born, a happy champeta, in time to celebrate everything that is good about music and life and to dance on carnival season, now we want to share it with you all!
As a present from me to you, I present you the end of the year compilation on my label Etoro Records, 7 great tracks by great artists, you can download for free, enjoy and felices fiestas!!
