Fronted by Anglo-Italian musician Peyoti, global groove collective Peyoti For President blends ska, reggae, afro & latin rhythms together with a punk attitude that is often expressed through social & political commentary.
“Vamos A Nadar” is the new single by Peyoti For President, written and composed by Peyoti and co-produced by Portuguese-based producer Marc Mennigmann. The song was written during a three-month visit to Mexico, the land of the mescaline Peyote cactus, and is a bouncy, tequila-fueled slice of uptempo world groove.
The track brings the sound of dance floor “cumbia” Mexicana-style to the streets for summer 2023, with a truly unforgettable keyboard hook that is guaranteed to be your earworm for Summer. It features the vocal magic of lovely, albeit slightly loca Ceci Meza, who was born and raised in Mexico City.
Following in the footsteps of artists like Manu Chao, whom Peyoti once performed with as UK tour support, “Vamos A Nadar” is a unique blend of new world groove and dancehall, combining sensual lyrics and spiritual counsel. It’s not often that you find both elements in the same song!
Peyoti for President‘s debut album from 2009 received considerable critical acclaim and was featured in mainstream newspapers and the music press, including a four-star review in Rolling Stone magazine and being named a top recommended summer download by The Independent. The BBC‘s Tom Robinson described the band as “not so much a pop group, but more a way of life… more a way of thinking”. Their music has been used in various media, including Netflix series “Gentefied”.
“Vamos A Nadar” is taken from Peyoti For President’s forthcoming second album, scheduled for release in Spring 2024.
