Colomboloco : Luz

The all star five-piece band, lead by Francesco Filizzola, has gained a huge following in the past 12 months, with Londoners flocking to see them perform their highly original mix of Spanish, Italian, Gypsy and Ska music in venues throughout the capital. This first album is a culmination of the bands past 3 years of performance and exploration. It will be received by hundreds of Colomboloco fans, that eagerly awaiting its release.

Adam Pickering (Music Promoter & Events Manager at The Elgin Food Pub & Music House and Promoter at Sounddhism) comments: “Bands don’t come more fun, frivolous and ballsy than Colomboloco. Think Godfather soundtrack meets European gypsy ska punk and you’re somewhere close to imagining this epic party monster. One night out you will definitely thank us for when all the dancing is done.”

The album totals 11 tracks, including their hit melody “Butterfly”, “I need You” and the highly energetic “Filumena” and “Luz”. Fans are expecting the band’s trademark theatrics on stage to further electrify the performance.
