Joyce Muniz & Shanti Roots – Cumbia Lolita

Engaging with minimal, one of the slightly less male-dominated subgenres of electronic music, one finds a wide array of active female producers and DJs.

One of them is Joyce Muniz, a Brasilian DJ, producer and singer who was born in Sao Paulo but lives and works in Vienna for almost 2 decades now.

Cumbia Lolita is taken from her ‘Cumbia Madness‘ EP that she released together with Santi Roots back in 2010. Here, she incorporates Latin American music, namely colombian Cumbia, with the sounds of western club culture and creates something she calls ‘Cumbia-Tech-House’.

I’ve always had an affection for the combination of Latin American sounds and culture on one hand and electronic music on the other for a while. But seeing ‘Matanza‘ live a few weeks ago, my love has reached new heights. If anyone has any more suggestions for bands or artists in a similar vein, preferably with women involved, please feel free to post them in the comments or send a message.

Year: 2010

Genre:  Minimal / Cumbia
