Well, whether or not you've previously thought about it, your curiosity can quickly be sated. Locos por Juana's side project, Afro-Kumbé, has been in the works for months. The same main cats from LPJ (Itagui, Mark, and Lakambra) have been blending their native Colombia's most dance-inducing sounds with electronica. The guys, who are at times joined onstage by the occasional guest rapper or musician, present multi-instrumental jams and infectious chanting the same energy that's made Locos por Juana a fan favorite for years, only in a whole new packaging. Come hear cumbia and champeta get an electro makeover.
