URBAN LATIN / Switzerland
Some floor-filling Latin grooves with semi-rapped vocals laid over the top, a sprinkling of piano-driven salsa and copious attitude oozing out of every tune – no dodgy cultural fusion going on here, this is the real thing.”
– World Music Charts Europe –
Dance to the international fusion sound of Lariba, a Latin/rap/salsa ensemble based in Switzerland. Lariba’s danceable and crowd-pleasing style of music fuses the power of Cuban rap with the elegance of Brazilian phrasings, the fury of Hip Hop with the fluidity of jazz, the contagious energy of reggae and timba with the passion of flamenco. Mutilingual lyrics add universal appeal to this upbeat musical experience.
