time for a new music tip: colombian music

8 Jun

Today i saw this nice video of the Colombian band “Grupo Ashanty” together with Jimmy Saa.

Created in 1993 by Antonio Asprilla” Ashanty”  the name of this band is derived from the Ashanty population of Ghana.

In 2008 the band moved to the United States and got known for their bachata and romantic salsa.

Their song BRINCA  of the bachata- tropical style got also recognition in Europe and Latin America.

in 2010 they moved back to Colombia and have been living since then in Medellin where they produced their second

album, RAICES, including the great song “Negrura” (Blackness)
