La Cuneta, Nicaragua’s darling super-group of Cumbia Sobaquiao, released their second single, Cañambuco, which features legendary Nicaraguan Super-star Carlos Mejia Godoy.

Long recognized within Nicaragua as representing the new generation of Nicaraguan music, La Cuneta came to international prominence when their record “Mondongo” was nominated for a 2016 Grammy Award for Best Urban, Rock, or Alternative Album. The announcement of their upcoming release on Round Whirled Records comes as their popularity in Latin America is soaring.

“This record captures the spirit of modern Son Nica and Cumbia with a satirical twist that shows the Gueguense poetic trickster that lurks in every Nicaraguan song,” says Cañambuco’s 8-time Grammy-nominated producer Greg Landau. The album was mixed by Carlos Alvarez (Marc Anthony, Carlos Vives) and mastered by John Greenham (Los Tigres del Norte, Sam Smith).
