The perfect balance of old and new Afro/Latin sounds makes this an essential release for anyone who's interested in the emerging new global music movement. Umoja keep impressing with their diversity and richness of sounds across the world music spectrum.
Favorite track: Flujo Suave.
Umoja, the quintessential sunshine duo from wet fields of the Netherlands, returns with a deep, dark and dubby rendition. As a follow up to the 70’s west African Funk and Afrobeat influenced Je-Ka-Lo!, Vuelo Nocturno sets out to be a reassuring statement of the duo’s production wizardry. With this record, the duo have managed to synthesis Cumbia and Afrocentric music traditions into a cohesive body of work.
