Introducing: Alma Negra
Alma Negra are a collective straight out of Switzerland. Four friends and musical kindred spirits spinning eclectic sound and celebrating roots across Cape Verde, Italy, Portugal and Spain.
Pulling together a myriad of skills with influences that include the likes of Donald Byrd, Theo Parrish and Fela Kuti to name but a few, the Swiss foursome create everything from electronic Latin, to funk, soul and beyond, known best for their energetic DJ sets and good taste.
Currently releasing on Sofrito, the group just dropped a mix for the upcoming Dimensions Festival, where the group will also be performing a live DJ set in August.
Alma Negra have put together a mix with different favourites, but are also previewing some upcoming releases of themselves and friends. They mixed a lot of different styles such as Gwoka, Soca, Maloya but also House and more Disco tunes. Enjoy!
