We don’t know much about these AfriColombian rappers except that our homegirl Natalia (who works with Collie Buddz and Los Rakas) put us up on them and they are repping the Caribbean coast—Cartagena is clearly visible in the background of many of their videos (Though they actually hail from Bogota). The multi-sex duo bring an infectious and Caribbean-inflected take on Colombian rap, something in the vein of Bomba Estereo but, you know, blacker. After their showcase at Austin club Prague on Friday, they head to New York for a date with Uproot Andy at SOBs on the 29th of this month.
