M.A.K.U. SoundSystem



Biography

M.A.K.U. SoundSystem was created between the years 2009 and 2010. Most of its band members are Colombian immigrants now living New York City. M.A.K.U. is an extension of a musical movement Colombian musicians are exploring with the textures of traditional music.

M.A.K.U. makes big music that begins in traditional Colombian rhythms and ends somewhere in the punk-jazz stratosphere. Clarinet, trombone, sax, sinths, guitar, and tambores supplement a driving rock core, creating a sound familiar enough to be danceable but always surprising.
