La Chiva Gantiva - Despegue (Flowfish Records)

For their third long player Belgian-Colombian band La Chiva Gantiva joined forces with producers Ivan Benavides (Toto La Momposina, Sidestepper) and Vincent Poujol. The band's recipe, a mix of Afro-Colombian rhythms with influences from punk and rock they baptized punkclore, has remained unchanged, but for 'Despegue' ("launch", "lift-off") the Brussels based band this time invited a number of well-known guests. Arrested Development front man Speech provides some hip-hop vibes in 'Cuero', and Atibalas' Martin Perna struts his sax in 'Fais Comme Si', the only French song in the track list.
