“Exuberante energía afrocaribeña en estado puro. Su potencia creativa, poco conformista e innovadora lo define dentro de un estilo de música experimental que le empuja a explorar nuevas vías de expresión. Sobre ritmo hip-hop, este músico multinstrumentista construye e improvisa fraseos e instrumentaciones de jazz, proyectando un sonido expresivo e hipnotizante en su directo. Kumar se sitúa delante de la audiencia rapeando versos repentinos sincopados a ritmo de eclécticos beats sampleados, intercalando percusión con instrumentos étnicos africanos(kalimba, TalkingDrum), acústicos y digitales, logrando una sonoridad personal de Kumar Sublevao-beat.” In & Out Jazz

Sub-Elevation is a consequence of Afro-Cuban culture influence, sacred Drums as a Batá with several tributes to Orishas and the Ancestral Yoruba tradition in combination with the modern language as Jazz and Hip hop. This music takes the listener directly into the jungle of our time, conspiracy, injustice , corruption and decadence are countered by a massive injection of Spiritualism and positive Revolution.

“Solo quiero conectarme la Wi-Fi.”  That’s the hook from a new song by the Barcelona-based, Afro-Cuban singer and producer Kumar Sublevao-Beat. And throughout the hot, smoggy weekend of Manana Cuba, the country’s first international electronic music festival, it was everywhere.The tune thumped out of a pre-party at the Casa Micaela, a windowless nightclub behind a secret door in a restaurant off the central Parque Cespedes. It rang from the main stage of the Teatro Heredia, a swooping modernist cultural complex where Kumar fleshed it out with local jazz musicians and traditional drummers”… Los Angeles Times
