Skalinka was founded 2007 in Germany and got their first nationwide recognition after winning a famous world music competition (Creole Weltmusik Preis in Niedersachsen / Bremen) in 2009. Ever since they played more than 150 shows in clubs and at festivals all over Germany. They played a concert with the Oldenburg Chamber-Symphony Orchestra with rearrangements of their songs and shared stage with bands like Ohrbooten, Abuela Coca, Costo Rico and the Toasters.
So far Skalinka released two studio albums. Their debut album called »Compulsivo« was released in 2011 and the latest album »Bricolage du Son« in summer 2015. After the great feedback they got in Germany they decided to make it available for an international audience together with Boomrush Productions.
»¡Anda, Anda!« – is the brand new single by Skalinka – taken from the latest album »Bricolage du Son«. Their musical identity is a wild mixture of world music styles and so is »¡Anda, Anda!«. A symbiosis of latin american sounds somewhere between „Buena Vista Social Club“ and Cuba Libre mixed with some punkrock attitude. The song tells a story about heartbreak, loss, and desire.
