Originally formed in 2018 as a support band for the international artists playing at Bristol’s only dedicated Tropical Bass night Midnight Ritua, “Xaman X” have grown into a wonderfully colourful beast over the past year. Combining live electronics with traditional Latin American instrumentation and outstanding percussion, they ride the thin line between old and new, grounded and psychedelic, spiritual and kitsch. Their improvised sets are ritualistic music for a post-modern era where bamboo marimbas and charangos glide effortlessly over synthetic sounds and otherworldly UFO howls, where the Colombian flute calling dances with bells, tamboras, congas and 808 kicks, supporting the beautiful voice and powerful bars of our other-worldly front-woman… Xaman X will keep your soul moving on this sonic rocket into outer space with the power of a deep bass super nova!
A remix by Village Cuts of their first single “Hoy”, featured in Movimiento’s compilation “Sanctuary” early this year to great acclaim in the tropical bass scene. Stay tuned for the band’s debut EP out soon!
