ARUMBO was born in Northern Europe, in Belgium. It is the musical nomadic project of Marta Meix Garcia (Barcelona) and Jonas Mertens (Brussels) born in 2015, which fuses rumba and reggae with influences from medicine music and through their travels. It results in danceable songs with melodies sung and written from the heart, festive yet elegant.
After several years travelling and playing on important stages in Europe, they produced a powerful first album independently, called “Camino de Vuelta”, in November 2018. It was recorded by Gorik De Smet and mixed and mastered by Joel Condal at the legendary Grabaciones Silvestres studio. On the album you can find collaborations with “La Pegatina” and “Gerammel en Geboenk”. They are currently working on a new album that will be released in 2022 under the label Vankiki Records.
