Dilanga

Jimmy Le M Productions

Released: 19th April 2010 | 4 track worldbeat ep
Dilanga play sincere, authentic Afro-Cuban Rumba with the drive, fire and passion that one associates with this music. The first time I saw them I was shocked at the huge sound and pyrotechnics they delivered. This is Rumba uncut - the way it should be. Snowboy Dilanga is made up of musicians who spearhead London's Latin and Afro-Cuban music scene. The word 'dilanga' in Cuban Ki-congo means 'times past'. The choice of name reflects the Afro-Cuban traditions from which the group draws knowledge and inspiration. True to the essence of rumba, Dilanga's style comes from injecting elements of our diverse musical backgrounds into the traditional form. In this, the debut EP, Dilanga showcases it's take on the rumba genre, including a version of the Toots and the Maytals classic, 'Pressure Drop'.Enjoy!
