Guacamayo Tropical (CO / Madrid)
The Colombian duo Guacamayo have been taking all the afrolatin flavour in their suitcase, spreading the sweaty love in their wild Guacamayo Tropical parties in Madrid and their Festival Guacamayo in the mountains near Madrid. Their sessions are characterized by the integration of organic musical instruments such as Colombian gaita, tamboras and djembe, and even typical and native dances switched up with digital beats. Also, they explore new sounds created from traditional roots with a slightly digital edge. Hearty, lively rhythms and flood the crowd with a colorful wave of love, joy and Cumbia! Inspired by earthly ancestral trips, they show us a path, an idea and a project aimed at challenging the senses on all fronts, shooting out sounds explosively charged with good vibes, light and hope.

Mr Orange (Lowup, Bxl)
a Brussels based music aficionado and founder of both the infamous Los Hermanos Brothers and Lowup. His musical universe is broader then broadway and he’s also active as a sound designer for theater and film. In his more informal playing moments he’s also known as Carrot or El sñr Naranja. Groovy tropicalism with a pinch of the unexpected and some tongue-in-cheek humour. Good music is timeless.

Ephniko hails from Barranquilla, Colombia, via Miami, Ephniko is an emcee, songwriter, global funk selector and producer whose music is rooted in the repetitive groove of hiphop and bass while expanding into the unpredictably eclectic. As a selector Ephniko moves crowds by combining African roots music from around the world with the electromechanical vibrations of the first world inner cities where he found his musical voice. He baptized his style of global dance as “Soundcocho.” He has performed in multiple festivals and concerts from Miami, Caracas, New York City and San Francisco to Capetown and Thailand.
