Exploring the galaxy with Systema Solar
Colombia is fast becoming a musical powerhouse of South America, bubbling under with new talent. One group to watch out for among this creative frenzy is Systema Solar from the Caribbean coast who played WOMEX. A cooperative of musicians equally at home in traditional forms such as cumbia, porro and champeta as they are in techno, house and break beat, Systema Solar are a force of nature. Look out for
them at the summer festivals in 2012.
