Elkin Robinson has emerged to be the new face of the Caribbean Folk. His music, is fueled with enchanting and powerful lyrics that capture the esscence of one of the last pristine hidden colombian islands of the caribbean. Calypso, mento, sailor folk, gospel, and zouk with a fresh, healing and unique sound.
Elkin´s music, rooted in the original sound of the caribbean, is an organic evolution of the folklore of his island. Typical instruments like the washtub bass, the horse jaw-bone, maracas and acoustic guitar build up a powerful jet gentle rhythm that goes beautifuly with amazing vocal arrangements by musicians that grew up singing gospel in Old Providence churches. For those who have the pleasure of listening to his songs, Robinson creates an experience that brings this beautiful little paradise closer to the rest of the world warming up the dance floor with lovely lilting caribbean breezes.
