Chancha Via Circuito + iBomba + ZZK + Damn Zun = Digital Cumbia Paradise
It's that time of year again! This has been our first full week of 60+ degress in NYC so I know the culos are ready to move tonite. We've put together something very magical for you, hope you can make it. If you're not anywhere near Brooklyn though, not to worry - 2011 watch for the global iBomba tour.
Joining us from Argentina, our homies ZZK Records will be making a stop as part of their Rio Arriba Tour, celebrating Chancha's record being released worldwide. Get that special edition double vinyl while they last!
ZAKEE will be performing with support from a backing band, debuting brand new material from his debut album, Assimilations, due out this summer on Green Owl/Warner Music. If you thought you had ZAKEE boxed in to KuKu Bass, Kuduro, and Club records, think again. He's broke down genre barriers of exclusivity, delivering Afro-Pop, mixed with Electronica, Indie, and Hip Hop, delivering something entirely fresh:
ZAKEE - GLORY by ZAKEE
NYC's Cumba Mela Collective will be represented by Thornato, 2Melo, and recent Dutty Artz signee, Atropolis.
Check out the mix Atropolis just released with Cluster Mag here:

AND we're being joined by Navegante who just released their new video for "All In Ur Head":
