M.A.K.U Soundsystem is an immigrant band from New York City. With most of its members hailing from Colombia, M.A.K.U embodies an active quest for identity through sound and bodies in motion, and puts on a party for everyday people. Born in 2010 the band has independently released two full-length albums, one EP, a highly-acclaimed album on Glitterbeat and toured across the U.S., Europe and Cabo Verde with their fiery grooves.
Together Peace & Rhythm & M.A.K.U. released "The Mix", a 7-song, 33rpm 12" EP on mixed colored vinyl in late 2016 featuring unreleased, rarities, and alternate versions of recordings spanning almost their entire career. The cover art was done by Liliana Conde. Available now! Order here.
