La Mambanegra Album Release - ‘El Callegüeso y su Malamaña’

Movimientos Records are very proud to celebrate their first international release; all the way from Cali, Colombia, La Mambanegra brings 10 tracks of Salsa straight out of the 21st Century with their debut album ‘El Callegüeso Y su Malamaña’. Its venom is made of 70’s NYC Salsa and elements of Jamaican and Colombian music, Funk and Hip Hop.

But, La Mambanegra are more than just salsa. Indeed, their leader Jacobo Vélez prefers to believe that they inhabit a genre all of their own. He calls it ‘break-salsa’, on account of the band’s easy assimilation of hip-hop, ragga and knife-sharp funk.

This nine-piece music orchestra have been grooving hard for four years now their polyrhythmic, horn-heavy and thoroughly modern sound quickly earning them a devoted following across South America and beyond. Their full-throttle live shows overflowing with the absolute commitment of each band member. And, in Vélez, they have an exuberant, passionate leader for whom the music is an essential life force. “Salsa is sweat, sex, liquour and Pielroja cigarettes,” he announces. “It’s the gasoline that turns my heart on.”

The Album album ‘El Callegüeso Y su Malamaña’ is available on Digital, CD & Limited 12" Vinyl?HERE.

Here are the dates for La Mambanegra's upcoming live shows:

2nd July - Love Supreme Festival

14th July - The Pavilion Theatre, Manchester International Festival

15th July - Omeara, London Bridge

“It’s a rousing and entertaining style” – The Guardian

“This is urgent, insistent salsa, driving to get out” – The Evening Standard

“As funky as James Brown and as hot as the Cali nightclubs that they light up on a regular basis... La Mambanegra are a force of nature and one of the most exciting bands to come out of Colombia for a while.” – Sounds And Colours

The Brighton shamans pay homage to some of their music heroes and legends in this latest release, featuring versions of Queen of the Blues Koko Taylor’s 70s classic ‘Voodoo Woman’ and a barnstorming ’Frankenstein Ska’ made famous by Byron Lee & The Dragonaires. Elsewhere there’s Cumbia galore notably on Lucho Bermudez’s fiery ‘Plinio Guzman’, whilst ‘Ghost Town’ develops a distinctly Colombian skank. Quietly explosive and utterly infectious, this album will start your toes tapping; before you know it you you’ll be drenched in sweat, lost in a dancing fever.

This album was recorded in Havana in Cuba and London where over thirty musicians were invited to bring to flower the compositions written, in their entirety, by Eliane. The album showcases Eliane’s deep devotion to jazz and the Afro Cuban tradition and her ability to take these cherished forms and create a wonderfully fluid record that pays tribute to the past but also expresses her love of the current sounds of neo-soul, R&B and urban Latino music.
