Album Notes
AmeFrica brings together musicians from Ecuador and southern Africa for a sound rooted in both continents and with the marimba as a common denominator. The project AmeFrica is initiated by the Norwegian based Ecuadorian percussionist and music arranger Tito Guevara. For this group Guevara is joined by the South African percussionist and marimba player Zwai Mbula – and from Ecuador the marimba player Larri Preciado and the vocalist Edson Perea. The CD also has a number of guest artists.

Guevara has for a long time wanted to create a project that combines African music with traditional popular music from his own country. Ecuador is one of the countries in Latin America where the marimba is a commonly used instrument. This instrument with its origins in Africa was introduced in the Americas in the 16th century. Today it is to a large extent associated to Latin America, while a lot of the traditional music performed on the instrument has African roots.
