We need a new party band for this strange, messed-up new world we're finding ourselves in. Rooted in the Afro-Latin soul of cumbia, MNGWA [pronounced ming-wah] is just that - a potent brew of musical medicine for these troubled times! The band blends elements of South American tropical music, psychedelic and prog rock, surf, salsa, reggae, and hip hop into their polyrhythmic pot. Forever shifting but never dropping the groove, MNGWA is constantly questing for new sounds and ways to bring their socially conscious lyrical messages across to the listener. With 8 full-time members from Mexico, Canada, Europe and Asia, the Vancouver, Canada based ensemble draws inspiration from across the globe and invites all to join in their sonic frenzy and trance-inducing rituals.
