Monsalve Y Los Forajidos - Abeja (Olindo Records)

Afro-Latin vibes from Paris on Lindo Records

Olindo Records is born in London from the music obsessives behind Colectivo Futuro, a cultural node where art forms and people converge. The collective is formed by a group of DJs, graphic designers, and artists who are committed to showcasing and collaborating with individuals and collectives that carry a passionate approach and a common aesthetic.

The label’s first release comes from the Paris-based septet Monsalve Y Los Forajidos, led by Venezuelan bassist Raul Monsalve, the band is an amalgamation of sounds and influences that revolve around traditional afro-latin styles of music with a heavy dose of psychedelia and funk. Both tracks originally appeared on the band’s self-released Volumen Dos album, but are presented here in vinyl for the first time.

The cuts presented here are only a small example of the music championed by the label’s founders on their Boom Music show for Music Is My Sanctuary

With Olindo Records, they hope to cover a wide variety of music for and from the soul.
