Multicultural influences are substantial in Will Villa’s music selection. The Germany based colombian DJ/Producer is working on his debut EP which contains collaborations from reknown artists from the latin music scene.
CHECKPOINT GUANABANA is a new music project founded by Alejo Marulanda & Hermano Simón, two Colombian-Berliners that together with some of the most representative musicians of Berlin´s Latin-scene are putting their twist on the sounds of Global Bass & Electronic Music live, creating afro-latin rhythms like merengue, cumbia, salsa, merecumbé or timba (amongst others) combined with power-funk, hip-hop and one of their most important influences: electronica from Berlin, their headquarter.

Their LP is just ready to go and will be release on ghetto-folk label Vlad.
Hermano Simón will be at Womex 2015 (Budapest): meet him on the GCMN stand – nr 1.96!
