Colombia’s System Solar is a musical-visual collective that makes music as vibrant and fun as those sweet Tron outfits, and “Rumbera” is the Latin American groove I needed to get myself ready for the Olympics.
The collective takes Afro-Caribbean vibes and blends it with hip-hop, house, and techno to create a sound that’s best heard on stage – the group’s self-described sound is called “Berbenautika,” which is a fusion of Pikos (sound systems) and Verbena (festival). It makes sense then that the band has made its name in America during its appearances at SXSW- if you go next year, make sure to check them out.
The group’s new album should be released sometime this year.
