Visit Malphino

Ooh this is a fun one. Visit Malphino is an sonic advert for the imaginary tropical island of Malphino. The group, while based in London, hail from places as far-flung as Japan, Malaysia, Colombia and The Philippines. Taking cumbia as a jumping-off point, the group mix the Colombian sound with styles as disparate as rumba and Brazilian forro, all played by a band led by accordion, organ and tuba. The resulting LP is a wry, fun listen that recalls Meridian Brothers.
