*Suns of Orpheus plays an eclectic and exotic swirl of sensuous world beat grooves, rock and psychedelic sounds that are influenced by funk, reggae and world music of the early 70s. With songs written in three languages, Suns of Orpheus transcends musical and cultural barriers while exuding explosive energy, charisma and universal appeal in their live shows. Check out their album here:
*Wanaku Beat is a Chilean and Japanese trio that emerged in 2014 in Santiago de Chile as a parallel project to the reggaeband Santobando. Wanaku focuses on fusiing urban and ethnic beats, decorating them with different instruments such as flutes, synthesizers, mouth harp, guitars, bass and vocals which all add up to the development of this unique music experience. Their music creates exotic atmospheres, moods and live trance by combining a broad spectrum of universal sounds and thus invites us on a dancing journey, passing through soul, funk, electro, rock, reggae and dub. Currently, they are on tour with their new album, ‘Light of Life’. Here’s a link to some of wanaku’s stuff: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWZxlTdeC_c&feature=youtu.be
