The song “El GIrasol is a positive and energetic track that blends elements of dance, hip-hop and afro-carribbean beats. The songs talks about the changes that we face as a global community and how we must be open to them.
Like the sunflower we must follow the sun to feed ourselves with the right energy needed to face any challenge. The voice of singer Katherine Gailer moves powerfully between the bands influences of latin hip-hop, cumbia, and Reggaeton making an explosive combination of sounds.

Produced by Oscar Jimenez (aka Chibcha) and Amaru Tribe the track explores the bands dance roots and prepare the way to their first EP to be launched later in the year.

EL GIRASOL will be available online through iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp and all the major music platforms on the night of the launch.

More about AMARU TRIBE:

Strings, Skins and wood holds together this tribe. Emerging from their trans-oceanic journeys they gather by the laws of creative gravity in the city of Melbourne to resonate with a new sound vision.In Quechua, “Amaru” is the serpent which connects the spiritual and the subterranean world. The tribes deep connection with their roots and mythology is nurtured through in their songlines. Amazonic drums, vibrating charangos and powerful vocal harmonies align to the Australian land creating a musical portal that connects the entire south hemisphere and gives birth to an unknown genre which they call Oceanic Cumbia.
