CUMBIASOUND – COSAS DEL UNIVERSO This is the second official EP from the Swedish Cumbia project – CUMBIASOUND Produced by Daniel Fridell. Featuring Boogie Castillo, Lis Flores Varela and José Pereelanga on vocals and Erik Axelsson on Trombone. -This second EP follows up where the first, ”VOL 1 – INSTRUMENTALES”, took off. Digging deeper into different types of Cumbia with a fresh squeeze of 70’s Palenque rythms, this 5 track release is exactly what you need to spice up your christmas! Daniel Fridell met Chilean singer/rapper Boogie castillo in the mid 90’s playing Hip Hop in Boogie’s band DOSS in Helsingborg, Sweden. They met again in 2012 when Daniel started Cumbiasound. They collaborated on a few songs on the first Cumbiasound release ”Calzones Largos” on the Caballito netlabel. Now was the time to both finish old ideas and create new music. The result can be heard on this release! The duo wanted more flavors to complete this EP so they called in singer Lis Flores Varela to sing on the songs, contributing with her smooth flow and beautiful voice, which shines especially on Mas Paz and Vaivén. Parallel with the Cumbiasound release, Daniel has been working with Congolese singer José Pereelanga on different occations and decided to broaden the sound even more, calling in José to do a sparkling feature on the song Vaivén. Cosas Del Universo mixes the traditional Colombian Cumbia with Peruvian Chicha, Reggae vibes, Afrobeat, Balkan, Progressive Rock and Palenque grooves. All instruments are played live by Daniel Fridell except on Cumbia Imperial where Erik Axelsson plays a solid Mambo-style horn section. Please Enjoy!!
