The Music

Like a ship traversing the cosmic sea, New York's 8-piece band Numasbala features talented musicians from Columbia and Guatemala showcasing musical prowess through SACUDON (#SACUDON). This unique blend of afro funk features solid gypsy and reggae overtones. One of their latest tracks “Esta Noche” is a well crafted song with personable lyrics delivered with flashes of beautiful pop. The driven brass arrangements draw influence from great's like Femi Kuti and NY favorites Antibalas. (NOTE – play at least till 2:52 for that nice sliver of goodness) -Cedar & Soil
