“Macumba de Marea” is the new offering from renowned British producer Will ‘Quantic’ Holland and Colombian folklore singer-songwriter Nidia Góngora. Nidia sings of soul’s lost at sea found by fishermen on “Macumba de Marea”, while Quantic’s orchestral layered instrumentation crescendos and flows, weaving between Nidia’s storytelling.
“This song speaks of the importance of the rituals to say goodbye to our dead, through actions, charged with mysticism, spirituality and beliefs that define our cultural identity”, Nidia Gongora
“Macumba de Marea” is part of the duo’s sophomore album ‘Almas Conectadas’ (Connected Souls) [released on 22nd October]. Bubbling with symphonic flourishes, the record explores the unique, rich, and mystical musical traditions of the Colombian Pacific Coast while being recorded at Quantic’s Brooklyn-based studio and creative powerhouse Selva. Delving into the concept of the album, Nidia explains: “Almas Conectadas refers to the interrelation of cosmic energies, the aura and the way they manifest from the abstract; we are more than body and flesh and there are countless elements that connect us as beings that interact in the universe, physical contact does not always exist to be connected.”
