Ever heard a guitar riff and thought to yourself, you know what would go good with this right now? African drums! No? But I bet you’re curious now as to how that would sound, right?
Well, look no further than the skill set of the wonderfully genre-blending Colombian band Járanatambó. In their past three albums in the span of a decade they have served up a potpourri of sound in their refreshing supply of ElectroLatin in which they fuse Salsa, Merengue, Folkloric rhythms of Colombia and Brazil with Electronic music components.
No less imaginative is their lyrical content which won them the International Songwriting Competition in 2010 for their song ‘OE’. The band name in itself is an allusion to ongoing revelry and this shows in their colorful energy on stage.
And with their latest creation ‘Republica Independiente’, in which they collaborated with many other Colombian and international artists, they continue to carve their rightful place in world music.
