Systema Solar are spearheading Colombia’s new independent scene. Theirs is a street sound system that will not go unheard, rooted in the “Picos” culture and its painted pick-ups that hit the streets with only one goal: to stand out and spread the vibe. From the banks of the Magdalena river to the stages of Europe, Systema Solar has charted a successfully course from local to global. The music is naturally based on Caribbean-coast rhythms, with a mix of cumbia, ragga and electro. A perfect demonstration in how to sample old cumbia tracks from the sixties and marry them with solid ragga and hip-hop vocals. On stage, the magic truly comes to life in whirl of boundless energy, generosity, colour and swing!
