World Connection is proud to announce the April 16th release of Choc Quib Town’s Europe’s debut album ‘Oro’. Fresh off a Latin GRAMMY nomination for “Best New Artist,” the group is originally from the Chocó region on Colombia’s Pacific coast. They fuse hip hop, electronica and funk with traditional Afro-Colombian rhythms.
2009 was a banner year for the group as they expanded on an international level, beginning with a break
through performance at SXSW in Austin. They showcased at WOMEX and toured from London to Paris and India to Berlin.
World Connection’s upcoming ‘Oro’ release includes the best of Choc Quib Town’s previous two albums released in Colombia, ‘Oro’ and ‘Somos Pacifico’. The acclaimed album ‘Somos Pacifico’ was produced by the innovative production duo of Richard Blair (Sidestepper) and Ivan Benevides (Carlos Vives).
