Best Fusion Band (2011)


Take coarsely chopped pieces of cumbia, reggae, merengue, ska, and salsa. Stir in fresh-picked funk and soul covered in Spanish and English lyrics. Sprinkle in a dash of rock and just a little more R&B and hip-hop. Take a megasize spatula and work in some decorative dancehall. And just for the hell of it, because you're feeling kind of crazy, throw in some kuduro from Angola and a bit of jazz. Now set the blender to "driving-down-the-highway-smoking-a-blunt-on-a-supersunny-day." Serve immediately.
