New Outtakes from Lulacruza & Vincent Moon’s Esperando el Tsunami Project| 09 July, 2012
Two more videos have been made available from the Esperando el Tsunami vaults, both showing the wealth of music in the Bolivar province Colombia, and especially around San Basilio de Palenque. Majin Diaz (from Gamera, Bolivar) uses a typical Palenque set-up of vocals, marímbula, drums (alegre and llamador) and percussion (guache) for a real feast of Afro-Colombia. Rafael Cassiani, who actually lives in Palenque, and his Sexteto Tabalá offers up something similar, though bringing a Cuban influence into the rhythms.
It all makes for some terrificly fascinating viewing and listening.
