As if you were speeding on an imaginary highway, linking Douala in Cameroon to Barranquilla in Colombia, Nkumba System revisits the similarities present in both Colombian and African music: generosity, dance, and trance.
Highlife, Zairean rumba or makossa meet with cumbia, currulao and even guaracha. The virtuoso Cameroonian guitar style and beauty of Caribbean polyrhythms join with an aim of satisfying all dancers! “¡Bailalo Duro!”
Now based in Marseille, Nkumba System brings together an explosive cocktail of Colombian, Cameroonian and Cuban musicians, resulting in an energizing tropical mix in which resourcefulness and virtuosity are paired with great ‘danceability’. Musical fireworks in the making!
