This hard-hitter rhythm section’s raw and relentless percussive pulse and fiery horns stoke the coals for an in-your-face vocal in English, Spanish and Portuguese to ultimately bring you a 5-piece mash-up of the most obscure subgenre crossovers of Latin, Caribbean and African inspired dance music.

From the salt-of-the-earth styles of Colombia’s merecumbé, Brazil’s bumpin’ sambafunk, and the amalgam of pan-latin styles of 1960-70s Panama (salsa dura, calypso, cumbia…) well into more modern day incarnations of sweaty 80s-inspired Latin and African disco dancefloor grooves, Tropikombo offers up a sound that is characterized by its vibrant diversity, its inclusivity and its willingness to embrace change, sharing this music and message with a world increasingly in need.
