Song of the Day: Sumo y Los Ermanos del Alma – Oya (Wichy de Vedado Remix)

Since its creation in the late 90s, we have seen Sumo roam various territories: electro, soul, funk, hip-hop, dub… Loyal to their initial state of mind, the group made up of brothers Alex (guitar, vocal) and Fred Sumi (bass, production) doesn’t box itself into one specific style, embarking instead on a constant musical odyssey. For its 6th opus Oya, the journey continues by exploring new horizons, rhythms and sounds. The group exiled itself to Cuba, where two tours (Habanarte festival, Cubadisco in 2017) had brought about striking and heartfelt friendships. In this new adventure, Sumo met his Cuban soul brothers to become:
Sumo y Los Hermanos del Alma. The result is both fascinating and fulminating. Oya is an afro-cuban rock record… a kind of Ufo with multiple sounds: afro-beat, rock-fusion, latin-jazz, afro-cuban soul voices. Enjoy the Wichy de Vedado Remix of the tune!
