The Garbato sessions - remixes

"Totó La Momposina has become a legend worldwide for her work with traditional music from the Caribbean coast of Colombia. As a singer, dancer and teacher she embodies that fertile place where Colombia’s African, Indigenous Indian and Spanish cultures mingle to create a unique musical tradition. Now in her 70s she continues to record, perform and collaborate, developing the music she loves.

Totó’s music has been sampled and remixed by countless DJs and producers from Timbaland to Michel Cleis - indeed the trance-like grooves of her tambores and the majesty of her voice continue to be an irresistible formula.

The Garabato Sessions bring influences from Bristol to Bogotá, with new remixes of Totó’s classic "Adios Fulana”. DJ, musician and remixer, Rob Smith (RSD), best known for making and playing breakbeat, drum & bass and dubstep, and as half of the duo Smith & Mighty (with Ray Mighty) provides the Bristol connection with his remixes."

Out Dec 2 on digital/vinyl, on Real World Records.
