Fusing Samba-Reggae and Afro-Brazilian influences with an eclectic mixture of world rhythms, WONDER WHAT’S BEYOND (PART 1) encapsulates Katumba’s unique sound, and paves the way for our upcoming album!

This digital download showcases some of the early work composed by Ritchie Tunstall, which is heavily Samba Reggae and Afro Brazilian influenced. The track ‘Maracalypso’ is a new hybrid style of rhythm unique to KATUMBA. The track ‘Gordo’ written by Brazilan Mestre ‘Eden Paulo’ and adapted by Ritchie features as a sign of respect and gratitude to the huge influence Eden's music has had to the samba community across the world.
