All-star Colombian band Ondatrópica have announced their debut UK live show at The Hackney Empire on 20th July. Formed by Will ‘Quantic’ Holland and Mario Galeano, Ondatrópica brings together an iconic group of top Colombian musicians representing both the classic and more modern styles of la musica Colombiana.

The same week of the Hackney Empire show Ondatrópica's debut LP drops on Soundway Records.  Recorded over 3 weeks in January 2012 at the famous Discos Fuentes studios in Medellín legendary figures from Colombian music joined a group of younger Colombian musicians that included members of both Mario’s band Frente Cumbeiro and Quantic’s Combo Barbaro. The plan; “to re-interpret the tropical musical heritage of Colombia with new approaches in composition, arrangement and production in a classic and mythical setting.”

Support comes from another recent Soundway signing KonKoma – a new London-based Afro-funk band who release their debut LP on 25th June.  Label boss Miles Cleret will be DJing on the night making it an all Soundway affair.
