La Zikabilo will heat the stage with the dance beat as they make debut appearance at the 15th edition of RWMF. This energetic brass band from France that mixes gypsy music with French chanson, rock & roll rhythms, jazz complexities and reggae handles many musical styles with ease and infectious joy. They combine the traditional instruments of a fanfare, such as trumpets, saxophone and percussions with more unusual instruments like the accordion and vocals.
La Zikabilo has produced an original show combining acoustic music and vocals of Cuban singer Barbaro Teuntor Garcia known for his participations in many famous cuban bands like The Buena Vista Social Club and Sierra Maestra.
