La Cuneta Son Machin

A cumbia take on Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”? Look no further than Nicaraguan sextet La Cuneta Son Machín. While second album Amor Fritanguero (2013) infuses folklorico with speed rap and metal, third LP Mondongo (2015) gallivants through marimba struts, guitar jangle, and carnival timbales. Next month’s SXSW showcasers are the first from their country to be nominated for a Grammy. – Alejandra Ramirez
