Malphino

Colombian Cumbia and Brazilian Forró mashed up with exotica and Italian film score influences.
Malphino play a heady mix of Latin American music - from Brazilian Forró to Colombian Cumbia via a variety of tropical rhythms and a nod of the hat to Italian film score. While based in London, members of Malphino hail from all corners of the world (including Japan, Malaysia, Réunion island and the Philippines). The band is a conceptual music project based around an imaginary island called 'Malphino' and the band aims for the music to transport the audience to this beautiful island culture where everyone is equal and everything is good.

Her camera effectively and movingly captures the human dimensions behind this war of symbols.
