Produced by Oscar Jimenez aka Chibcha (Watussi, Madre Monte, Miss Colombia) and Amaru Tribe, the album's unique energy showcases collaborations with artists from all around the world including: Tonolec (Argentina), QVLN (USA), Stuart Fergie from OKA (Australia) and more.
Their strong musical heritage imbues their compositions, which explore electronics fused with tribal instrumentation, uniting South America and Oceania into one musical vibration. The album's bilingual nature allows the listener to discover connections between Australia's diverse cultural backgrounds and it consolidates its place in a new global identity.
Amaru Tribe calls this style Oceanic Cumbia or in spanish: Cumbia Oceanica, which gives the name to their first track in the album and introduction to their sound.
