From the Valley to El Mundo: El Keamo’s New Electro-Cumbia Single, ‘El Rompecabezas’

[dropcap size=big]E[/dropcap]l Keamo is a modern cumbia artist from the San Fernando Valley cooking up electro-cumbia jams in his secret laboratory in Canoga Park. This is El Keamo's third single release after his collaboration with Puebla, Mexico based producer Plastic Toy Sounds on their single "Espacio Tropical". Following El Keamo's taste for experimentation with traditional Latin sounds, "El Rompecabezas" is a mixture of musical genres including Cumbias, Mexican Norteñas, and electronic soundscapes.

El Keamo is the alias of Alfredo González-Martínez, a Mexican American multimedia artist from Reseda California working mainly out of Canoga Park. El Keamo is a neo-cumbia project influenced by various styles of music such as cumbia sonidero, tribal, house, and acid house. The result is a mix of digital textures and familiar rhythms that inspire both the dance floor and the backyard day party.
