‘Por Eso’ (‘That’s why) blends merengue with Afro-Colombian rhythms and fused with horns, saxophone and synths the track is an upbeat call to resistance and social action around the world.

‘Máquina’ (Machine) is an instrumental track where the hypnotic and infectious machine like repetition of Afro-Colombian beats are fused with elevating horns and a sprinkling of funk.

The Por Eso/Máquina EP is an exciting fusion of Caribbean and traditional Afro-Colombian sounds showcasing the growing Colombian jazz scene and revealing the promise of what’s to come.
