World Music Features CSS

World Music Features Bonde Do Role
Bonde do Role’s sound is funk-inspired, though their sonic pastiche is a mutation of proper funk carioca. The trio blatantly sample retro American pop and metal, plunging the guitar riffs into an already kitschy mix of Miami-bass beats, samba drum-loops and relentless, tongue-in-cheek, raunchy rapping.

World Music Features Jesus Alemañy And Cubanismo
Renowned for a lean brass section and a freewheeling, danceable jazz style, the powerhouse ensemble Cubanismo is back with Greetings From Havanna. Led by trumpeter and frontman Jesus Alemañy, the group sitrs up a wicked brew of guaracha, son, rumba, mambo, and Afro-Cuban jazz—a full-blown musical assault with so much swing, it could make Congress rethink the U.S.-Cuba embargo.

World Music Features Camilo Lara
Camilo Lara is the man behind Mexican Institute Of Sound, but he's also a top record exec for EMI Mexico with his ear glued to the underground, as well as an author on the verge of his print debut. With so many balls in the air, it's easy to see why the Mexico City native finds fullfillment in cross-pollinating as many musical style as he can.

World Music Features Senor Flavio

With legendary Argentine rockers Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, Señor Flavio helped define Rock En Español in the ’90s. His new album Supersaund 2012 ripples with the reggae and ska sound that put LFC on the map, but also offers a fresh brew of punk, garage, and psychobilly—a raucous cocktail that’s sure to propel Flavio to the indie forefront once again.

World Music Features Pacifika
British Columbia doesn’t necessarily register as a locus for cross-pollinations of Latin pop, jazz, electronica, neo-flamenco, new wave, dub, and Latin-American folk music, but the Vancouver-based trio Pacifika delivers all that and more, spinning a tapestry of sound so alluring it’s hard not to be enveloped by the infectiousness of it all.
