M.A.K.U. Soundsystem is an 8-piece band of New Yorkers with Colombian roots. They ground their music in the body-dominating rumbling rhythms of cumbia, but throw afrobeat and hip-hop vibes in as well. The result is a super-rhythmic juggernaut of impossible potency. Mezcla is the collective’s third album. Out on Glitterbeat.

8/10 VENTRE Roderic 8th May 2016
It is in a bawdy brass and percussion the New York M.A.K.U Soundsystem invites us to share his musical roots firmly anchored in Afrobeat and Afro-Colombian rhythms.
The eight musicians present us their 3rd album entitled Mezcla and with 9 titles that express the Colombian origin, common to most of them (Barranquilla and Bogota), while incorporating explosive sounds borrowed from punk, to funk and hip-hop in a committed and optimistic pattern, many are about search for identity. His reflections jazzy fanfare New Orleans boosted to Afro-groove are largely enriched ska, releasing a rare and contagious vital energy!
