From the beginning of his carrier, Caribombo has been collaborating with many talented artists from all over the world. Mixing and matching South American and African rhythms, Caribombo creates a powerful and diverse sound universe where cumbia, dembow, afro-beat and afro-house effortlessly fit together. Adopting typical tight beats, basses and synths from the “Global Bass” electronic scene, Caribombo cleverly and respectfully revisits folkloric traditions from both continents with a highly-skilled production technique.
Having recently moved to the more contrasted climate of the French countryside, Caribombo has adapted to his environment, just as the reptile would do. His forthcoming album “Camaleon” is taking us to a musical journey from Africa to Patagonia, through the UK and Mauritius.
Accordingly involving singers from the Congo (Shak Shakembo), the Togo (Yao Bobby), Mauritius (Menwar), Venezuela (OCM), and the UK (Anglls), “Camalon” ranges from the Baile Funk vibes of “Cosa Buena” and the Latin Andean cut of “Sharango” (feat Rodrigo Gonzalez), to the deep Sega “Bin De Dam”, via doses of uptempo Afro-Latin house production aesthetics on “Moral Zero” or “Pacifico”, and the definitely post-pop anthem of “Warrior”.
