BUSTAMENTO to release new album ‘INTERCONTINENTAL JOURNAL 7’ on November 28

 

Nicky Bomba has once again rallied his musical cohorts and produced a fresh sounding album that lifts off beautifully from their last highly acclaimed excursion. ‘Intercontinental Journey 7’ will be released on November 28, 2014.
 

BUSTAMENTO is one of the multiple side projects from Nicky Bomba, one of Australia's busiest and most highly respected musicians.  They are a tropical shaking six piece that pay homage to the upbeat rhythms of the Caribbean, covering the Calypso, Mento, Early Reggae and Ska styles.


After spending the last 2 years performing around the globe, BUSTAMENTO have returned to musical shores with a great collection of songs capturing the international flavour of their intrepid travels. An exciting departure from the Carribbean based style of their ARIA-Nominated first album (Intrepid Adventures to the Lost Riddim Islands) , the new release shows the band flexing its creative muscle.
 

“The last couple of years has seen a great enthusiasm for our style of music, and it seemed like a natural progression to step everything up heading into 2015”, said Nicky Bomba.
 

A collection of eleven original songs penned by the band and co-produced by Robin Mai (John Butler, Augie March, Blue King Brown) ‘Intercontinental Journal 7’ is a musical mission on a round-the-world adventure of fun and games.
 

On Transmitter Records: 
The brainchild of Nicky Bomba and Joe Camilleri, Transmitter Records will provide a home to like-minded reggae, ska, calypso and world music artists in Australia. They will partner with ABC Music to release brand new music, along with re-releasing gems from the back catalogue including a Bomba box set, Limestone (Joe and Nicky), Banana Oil and Drums & Lions (Ethiopian).

BUSTAMENTO will be touring INTERCONTINENTAL JOURNAL 7 over summer
 

************************************************

Transmitter Records will officially launch at the AWME FESTIVAL CLOSING PARTY at Melbourne’s THE HI-FI on SUNDAY 16 NOVEMBER.

The party will include performances from Bustamento, Melbourne Ska Orchestra, The Ska Vendors, Mighty Duke & The Lords and DJ Jesse.
