Marimba Del Pacifico

AYA RECORDS



CD

Released: 14th Jul 2017

£9.99


a beguiling showcase of a protected sound heritage  – a celebration of a unique cultural history to be found nowhere else, euphorically blending afro-beats with latin American rhythms & grooves.

Rio Mira are a Marimba supergroup formed of Afro-Pacific bi-national heritage & consisting of some of the most in-demand & respected musicians from Colombia & Ecuador. Their music is the sonic rejoining of a historically, ecologically, & culturally connected region – ‘El Pacifico Sur’ - that has been divided by the state-borders of Ecuador & Colombia. It is in this densely populated area where the rhythms of Africa have entwined with the lilt & grooves of Colombia & Ecuador, & Marimba music has become firmly established – a sound so sacred it was added to UNESCO’s ‘Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity’ in 2015.
