Journalist, filmmaker, university professor, dj … Etienne Savet has an impressive cv. Though, above all he is trumpet player, producer and founder of The Bongo Hop, the Afro-Carribean project that plays a surprising cocktail of hip-hop, tropical, dub, dancehall, vallenato, cumbia and kompa. Savet found his inspiration in Colombia, where he lived for eight years. On the first album ‘Satingarona pt 1’ he worked with friends from his time in Colombia: Nidia Gongora (vocalist with Ondatropica and Quantic), rapper Maikcel (Zalama crew) and producer/multi-instrumentalist Patchworks. As expected ‘Satingarona pt 1’ is filled with exotic grooves. You can easily imagine yourself at a sultry latin party with view on a pearl white beach an clear blue sea. A combination no one can resist!
