Afro was our first international release, and our first attempt to bring Afro-Peruvian music up to date in the same way as Nicomedes Santa Cruz and others did decades ago when the fragile existence of this music was fading. We were very satisfied with the result, which is raw and acoustic but at the same time electronic. Dark but soulful. Deep and haunting at times. We are joined on this album by some of the finest Afro-Peruvian musicians on cajon, guitar and vocals giving every song a live feel and the album includes additional production on all tracks by Nitin Sawhney s and Da Lata s studio wizard Toni Economides.
