Como Lo Ves

Interpreter: Lariba
Label: Ventilador Music
Location: Cuba/Various

For a Swiss-based band, these guys are seriously funky. The fact that they are (mostly) Cuban goes some way to explaining it. However, they ARE as precise as clockwork, so clearly it's a two-way transaction. Some floor-filling Latin grooves with semi-rapped vocals laid over the top, a sprinkling of piano-driven salsa and copious attitude oozing out of every tune - no dodgy cultural fusion going on here, this is the real thing.
