This Corona stuff really sucks ey! Since we might all be bound by borders for a while, we’d like to come together and share some happiness in the shape of a playlist or mix!
In the next days and weeks, check out Safe & Sounds, where we will figuratively introduce you to and put you in touch with music whizzes, featuring their selections, collections and picks from all around the globe.
Be “Safe & Sounds” and wash your hands!
In times of global crisis, music can help make us feel good. Mukambo selected some sunshine vibes but also poignant social critique embedded in a danceable groove, coz we shouldn’t believe everything they tell us. Get grooving coz only the heat will save us from corona. Turn up your speakers and… arriba-riba!

A mocambo or quilombo was a refuge in the forest for liberated slaves in colonial Brazil. My Mukambo is the asylum for those who want to escape from the pop/rock/electro dictatorship, a place where you can dance to grooves from all around the world.
