Tribu Baharu - Made In Tribu Baharu (7") (Vinyl) LP
Seven inch vinyl pressing. Comes in full-color die-cut sleeve with center hole and full-color label. Electric Cowbell Records offer a limited-edition release from Tribu Baharú, a Champeta criolla and world music band from Bogotá, Colombia. It's been denigrated and damned, boycotted and banned, but it can never be stopped: champeta, the ever evolving, high-energy hybrid of Colombian, African and Afro-Caribbean styles just keeps on coming. And leading a new charge are Tribu Baharú, barrelling out of Bogotá, championing their version of champeta, inspired by the legendary, streetshaking Pico sound-systems of Colombia's Caribbean coast. Sparkling Congolese guitar driven by high-speed bass and drums and the upfront singers. Champeta was swept away by the ubiquitous Reggaeton in the '90s but Tribu Baharú are part of a wave of nuevas musicas Colombianas based in the capital city who are reestablishing it as a prime force and adding more ingredients to the recipe. Contain traces of soukous, zouk, calypso, mbaqanga, soca, compa Haitiano, rap and ragamuffin. Essential ammunition for the globally-minded DJ. Recorded in the legendary Bastille/Inner Ear Studios in Arlington, VA, renowned for it's punk output of bands like Fugazi and Minor Threat. DON'T JUST LISTEN TO MUSIC EXPERIENCE IT.
