Sony calls Trending Tropics, âan innovative multi-media, music fusion projectâ with music âborn from the traditions of Afro-Caribbean and Caribbean cultures and rhythms - intertwined with the sounds of boundary pushing contemporary/ experimental recording techniques and timely lyrical subject matter.â
Cabra previously told Billboard that reggaeton, approached "in a different way" will be part of the mix.
In an announcement from Sony, Cabra called Trending Tropics, "a project that was made with much love and with a brutal sense of art."Source: Google News Colombia | Netizen 24 Colombia
