About Ghetto Kumbé:

The secret behind Ghetto Kumbé’s irresistible electronic ritual lies in their powerful percussion base; Caribbean beats and traditional Afro-Colombian rhythms inherited from West Africa.

Using musical motifs from Africa and Colombia’s Caribbean coast such as the gaita, call-and-response vocals, and an array of hand drums and rhythms, coupled with the elegant electronic production, Ghetto Kumbé creates an Afro-futurist soundscape with lyrics to motivate, elevate, and inspire.

In the Americas, Ghetto Kumbé has become one of the most important alternative groups to come out of Colombia. They’ve played Barranquilla’s world famous Carnival, Bogotá’s recent Boiler Room, and have even opened for Radiohead. The ancient yet modern sound of the three powerful musicians has made them a legitimate representative of the new Afro-House scene burgeoning all over the world.
