MNGWA – New Single “Que Mngwa Llegó”

Que Mngwa Llegó captures Mngwa’s eclecticism & diversity – with lyrics in Spanish, French & Russian, & rhythms that twist between Son Cubano, Hip hop, & Psychedelic Salsa. B-side track Rebelión is a dub cover of Joe Arroyo’s Colombian classic.


Mngwa takes its name from a giant cat that once stalked the jungles of eastern Africa. An 8-piece experimental Latin ensemble based in Vancouver, Canada, but their music is rooted in the cumbia of South America. Far removed from a cohesive Latin music scene, Mngwa has instead been developing their own singular style, dubbing it Vancumbia. After 3 years of sharing their sounds with an unsuspecting local audience, they are now committed to pushing their own Northern strain of cumbia even further and reaching fans of Latin music worldwide. With band members from Europe, Asia, Canada and Mexico, Mngwa makes wild new music that jumps many boundaries in the quest for discovery – without ever losing the groove. Following a breakthrough 2015 which included the release of their debut Vancumbia Ambush EP, Canadian festival appearances, and a Mexican tour, Mngwa is now preparing to record their full-length debut and broadcast their sound into the distant cosmos.
