The Colombian duo of futuristic tropical electronic music, RIZOMAGIC,
is pleased to announce the release of their second album titled
-MARIMBITIAOS- (Click to listen exclusively).

In a rhizomatic manner, where different elements are interconnected

connections, “Marimbitiaos” is a celebration of multiplicity inspired
by the music of the Colombian Pacific marimba.

With the collaboration of Jayer Torres, son and heir of the great
master of Colombian Pacific music, Gualajo, “Marimbitiaos” establishes
a dialogue between traditional sounds and the multi-timbral
possibilities of electronic music, creating a unique sound that
expands the horizons of Colombian electronic music discography.

In “Marimbitiaos,” ancestral rhythms such as currulaos, tamboritos,
and jugas intertwine with elements of ambient, IDM, and drum&bass,
giving rise to an unmistakable sonic deconstruction of Colombian

“Marimbitiaos” features collaborations with the traditional music
group “Bejuco” and the Colombian singer based in England, “Montañera,”
and will be released in digital and vinyl format on October 27, 2023,
through a partnership between the Colombian label Polen Records and
the Italian label Disasters by Choice.
