EDITORS’ NOTES

On their sophomore album, the Colombian rap trio expertly blurs the line between the sacred and the street while embracing their Afro-Latin roots. Goyo, Tostao, and Slow celebrate their homeland's musical melting pot on “De Donde Vengo Yo” and their distinct heritage on “Somos Pacifico.” They also use a broad palette of Latin American musical idioms to color around deep basslines and heavy beats, most notably on "Busco Personas." Throughout, they rap in Spanish like MCs hosting a carnival in Barranquilla, over infectious rhythms that are both inherited and drawn from a shared urban experience.

About ChocQuibTown

Choc Quib Town are an Afro-Colombian hip-hop band whose independently released debut album, Somos Pacífico, won them critical acclaim. Founded in Quibdó, the capital city of the Chocó region of Colombia, Choc Quib Town are comprised chiefly of rappers Tostao, Goyo, and Slow, in addition to several musicians who perform the band's tropical style of hip-hop. Choc Quib Town made their full-length recording debut in 2006 with the independently released Somos Pacífico. The album was subsequently remastered in London and re-released in 2007 on the Polen label. In 2008, as acclaim for the band continued to mount -- including a pair of Premios Shock nominations -- Choc Quib Town released El Bombo, a three-track EP. ~ Jason Birchmeier
