Album Notes

A Kaleidoscope of sound.

Overcomes boundaries,
Breaks down barriers,
Brings people together
Embraces diverse cultures.

World music. A vibrant melting pot of African rhythms such as Kwasa Kwasa, Marrabenta, Mbaqanga and High life with South American elements from Samba, Salsa and Chacarera with a strong jazz influence and lyrics in African languages, Spanish, Portuguese and English.

FINALIST on THE INTERNATIONAL SONGWRITING COMPETITION 2008 in the world music category, with the song ESA MORENA.

The desire of a group of musicians from different cultures and nationalities such as South Africa, Argentina and Mozambique, to unite and fuse different styles of music, resulted in the launch of World music Afro-tropical band TUCAN TUCAN.
