Biography

Orishas is a group that combines new hip-hop rhymes with classic cuban beats. They’ve revolutionized latin music by creating a fusion sound. Their albums include “A lo Cubano”, “Emigrante”, “El Kilo”, “Antidiotico” & “Cosita Buena”. Below is the complete Bio from their website:

It’s been quite a journey since Orishas released their first album ‘A Lo Cubano’ in Spain in May 1999. Lauded by the press throughout Europe ever since it came out, the group launched into a marathon tour that started in summer 1999. From clubs to festivals, the European tour stretched out to just over two years with evening performances of their music catalogue at the Olympia, the Ancienne Belgique and the Royal Festival Hall in England. They were to play at the most prestigious festivals in Europe like the Lowlands (Holland), where they topped the bill along with groups like Deftones and Cypress Hill, and the Roskilde (Denmark), where they brewed up a storm alongside groups as disparate as Tool and Wyclef Jean. Orishas also performed in the year 2000 at festivals like the Paleo Nyon Festival, the La Rochelle Francofolies and Pop Kom.

The group gradually acquired international standing, and after conquering Europe they went on to win over the United States in November 2000, with the American press unanimous in its acclaim: articles and reviews in Time, Rolling Stone, The Source, Vibe ,.
