Pernett: ‘Al Caribe Volvere’

By 15 August, 2012

What happens when you mix the production skills of Colombian “folkclor progresivo” artist Pernett with the steel drum prowess of Japan’s Sukiyahki Steel Orchestra? Why, a new track, of course.

The prolific Humberto Pernett has graced us with the second track off his forthcoming album, Caribbean Computer, which he’ll release in Japan under the label, Beans Records, later this month.

He describes “Al Caribe Volvere,” as a “special champeta.” Indeed. The steel drums add a sweetness to the track. Lyric-wise, Pernett again puts his true love of Colombia’s Atlantic coast on display. It’s an ongoing source of influence for the Cali-based producer and artist, who discussed his influences with us earlier this year.

Caribbean Computer is Pernett’s fifth album and it will drop on August 26 at the “Sukiyaki Meets the World” Festival in Nanto City. Pernett and SSO play a couple of dates in Japan this month. More information about venues and tickets can be found on his site.
