It's been a while since we had a look at what's bubbling in the MySpace scene. Due to the overload of bands this has become a kind of linkdump - sorry about that, but this way we're sure you'll find something you like below!
Ibrahim Ferrer Jr. - Son of the late Cuban son and bolero legend.
Mexican Institute of Sound - DJ Gorky (of Bonde do Role) did a sexy Cumbia Favela Funk Remix of the Institute's "Escribeme Pronto", check it out.
Watussi - the Australian answer to Manu Chao, Sergent Garcia and other mestizo fusion.
Ludo - Costa Rican-French, bluesy rootsrock which seems to have found a wide audience on MySpace (just look at his number of plays and profile views..).
Omar Alexander - He's half Colombian, half Indian and has a very special voice that comes out the best in the ballad "Abandona El Amor" - with a funky panflute.
Cumbia Ya! - A fairly new cumbia outfit from France, which will set the summer festivals on fire here in Europe (for example, July 5th at the Cameleon festival in Belgium!).
Los Turbopotamos - Rockabilly and ska from Peru
Some Spanish indie rock bands I liked:
More indie rock, this time from Mexico: Mama Burger.
