Novalima’s Coba Coba Remixed To Be Released This Summer, Ahead of US and European Tour

Album features floor-burning remixes by some of the world's top DJs
and offers a fresh take on Novalima's pioneering blend of Afro-
Peruvian roots and modern club grooves.

"Afro-Peruvian tradition collides with modern production techniques to
create an infectious hybrid.
- Jason Bentley, Morning Becomes Eclectic, KCRW

"Like Gotan Project at their best, this Afro-Peruvian outfit takes the
rhythmic and melodic forms of its traditional music
and make something wholly vital and contemporary out them. Muscular,
idiosyncratic grooves.
" - The Independent (UK)

"If this is truly the future of Afro-Latin music, then all is well." -

Earlier this year, the Peruvian band Novalima released their album
Coba Coba, and it quickly became one of the most critically acclaimed
Latin and world music albums of the year so far. With their unique
fusion of Afro-Peruvian soul with dub, salsa, hip-hop, Afrobeat,
breakbeat and house music, Novalima has earned raves from trend-
setting DJs and journalists and has developed a wide following across
the globe.

In anticipation of the band's return to the US and Europe this summer,
Cumbancha will release Coba Coba Remixed, an exhilarating collection
featuring 14 new remixes by top DJs and producers from Europe and the
US. Available in CD and vinyl versions, Coba Coba Remixed is filled
with funky beats and chilled out grooves that will delight fans of
globally-inspired dance and electronica. A new music video for
Novalima's song "Coba Guarango" will also be released shortly on
iTunes and other digital and television broadcast outlets.

With a fresh and innovative sound that stands on a centuries-old
foundation of soul and heritage, Novalima promises to keep Afro-
Peruvian expression thriving long into the future, and Coba Coba
Remixed serves as an exciting new step on this mission. Coba Coba
Remixed features remixes by Da Lata, Zeb, Toni Economides, Faze
Action, Paul Seiji Dolby, Boozou Bajou, DJ Spam, EarthRise
Soundsystem, Daniel Haaksman, StreamerPilot and more.
