Finally, a review of Nabúmla:
What have we got here? A Bulgarian gypsy band, a South American latin orchestra or a British pop group? The answer must be all and neither. The group in question is La Cucina from Great Britain and the music on their new album ‘Nabúmla’, released in the beginning of March, as the follow up to their debut album ‘Chuchería’, is a mixture of lively latin rhythms, melancholic gypsy tunes and pop-jazz fusions with a twist of roots and world music. The lyrics are performed in British English on all the tracks except on ‘Villa Laterno’ and ‘Naked in the Sunshine’ which are in both English and Spanish. The latter is a cheerful singalong, which could easily be a holiday hit in the coming summer. All the tracks, though, have catching lyrics and are originals from the whole band (five members). […]If you want to cheer yourself up one day, or you’re going to have a party, La Cucina’s music is definitely the kind to put on the CD player. It is almost impossible to keep your body still when their music comes pouring out of the loudspeakers - Djembe Magazine, no. 16, April 1996
