Electric Cowbell Records offer an exclusive Record Store Day 2017 single from Tribu Baharú, a Champeta criolla and global music band from Bogotá, Colombia. Recorded while the group was on a US tour at the legendary Bastille/Inner Ear Studios in Arlington, VA, renowned for its output of seminal Washington, DC punk bands like Fugazi and Minor Threat.

It's been denigrated and damned, boycotted and banned, but it can never be stopped: champeta, the ever evolving, high-energy hybrid of Colombian, African and Afro-Caribbean styles just keeps on coming. And leading a new charge are Tribu Baharú, barrelling out of Bogotá, championing their version of champeta, inspired by the legendary, street-shaking Pico sound-systems of Colombia's Caribbean coast. Sparkling Congolese guitar driven by high-speed bass and drums and the all-animating upfront singers. Champeta was swept away by the ubiquitous Reggaeton in the '90s but Tribu Baharú are part of a wave of nuevas musicas Colombianas based in the capital city who are reestablishing it as a prime force and adding more ingredients to the recipe. Contain traces of soukous, zouk, calypso, mbaqanga, soca, compa Haitiano, rap and ragamuffin.

Limited-edition 7” 45RPM on black vinyl will be released on Record Store Day April 22, 2017 and the vinyl will ONLY be available in select record stores worldwide. Comes in full-color die-cut sleeve with center hole and full-color label. Essential ammunition for the globally-minded DJ.
