Afrikun is the result of the collaboration of three young Afro-Cuban artists. MC / Music Producer Kumar Sublevao-Beat and Machete Horns teamed up with a multi-instrumental duo consisting of ‘“El Congo Allen and Regis Molina” . With an energetic, rhythmic, modern and ancestral staging, Afrikun is a trip to the past in a vehicle of the future.

A project in which rhythm machines, synthesizers, horns, drums and millennial instruments pay tribute to the musicians African Ancestors, and deepen the diversity of their cultural heritage. Being explicitly reflected, the experimental and spiritual nature of the album is nothing more than ‘round trips of the music’ [to the musical imaginaries of Africa as a] ‘creative continent’. Also collaborating in this project are Omar Sosa,Dayme Arocena, M.anifest, Mû Mbana, Adama Kone… as well as other impressive artists.
