about

After deconstructing the pathologies of the colonized psyche in our last series of artistic projects, it was about time to express the joyful experiences of our existence as Black and Brown people.
Cumbé is a word of Yoruba origin that means celebration, festivity.
The body of the oppressed not only has a language, but a discourse, and this album will make you embrace dancing as a form of emancipatory dialogue.
Up-beat soulful melodies, deep house, nu-disco merges with top-notch lyricism, never scared to dissect the borders that hegemonic cultural industries determined as Hip Hop.
Intellectual stimulation has arrived to the dance floor.
Welcome to Cumbé.

Después de haber deconstruido las patologías de la psique colonizada en nuestras anteriores series de proyectos artísticos, nos llegó el tiempo de plasmar las experiencias de goce en nuestra existencia como personas de color.
Cumbé es una palabra de origen Yoruba que significa celebración, un acto festivo.
El cuerpo del históricamente oprimido no solo tiene un lenguaje sino un discurso y este álbum te hará abrazar el baile como una medida de dialogo emancipatorio.
Melodías soulful up-beat, deep house, nu-disco, se combinan con un ejercicio lírico de primera línea, nunca temeroso a descifrar los bordes que la industria cultural hegemónica determinó como Hip Hop.
La estimulación intelectual ha llegado a la pista de baile.
Bienvenidos a Cumbé.
