GOTOPO is the Latin-American soundtrack of the future. FKA Twigs, Bomba Estéreo and The Weekend meet and flirt in a club night in Bogotá.
Their debut single ‘Malembe’ is a Pop soundtrack of Latin-America, taking us from Pre-hispanic times to Pos-Colonialism in 4min in a display of Afro-indigenous elegance.
Their 3rd independently released single ‘Eso’ with Joaquin Cornejo was featured on BBC 6, Worldwide fm, XLR8R, DJ MAG and landed organically on ‘Electrica Selvática’ (240k listeners).
An artist at the intersection of Academy and Pop culture, Gotopo is a Consultant of Latin-American Music and Culture at the Humboldt Forum Berlin, and is part of the Humboldt Forum orchestra's founding team.
GOTOPO is scheduled to perform next to Blick Bassy in the opening of the Humboldt Forum this Summer 2021.
The video shows what looks like a series of scenes that blur the line between a mystic ritual and an intimate dance club. By offering this complete vision of an alternative future, Gotopo has given us a science fiction story not unlike those of N. K. Jemisin.

"Debut single Malembe by dynamic artist, Gotopo, is inspiring, energy rich, stength-on-strength on top of it all. A “futuristic soundtrack of Latin roots, a mashup of Lido Pimienta, FKA Twigs and Bomba Estéreo”, Malembe never stops to bring you forth, or let you go."— Come here Floyd.
“In the video for her new single ‘Malembe’ Gotopo invites us to imagine a future where pre-European contact religions and cultures of the Americas and ancient African cultures have produced a syncretic culture”.
-Queen City Sounds.
The song is driven by the majestic-like vocals of Gotopo and backed by a futuristic beat that thrives on intense and mysterious energy.
