Their’s is a unique musical journey that explored Latino rhythm’s, reggae, big band and calypso all through a prism of funk, pop, new wave, and disco. They scored huge hits in the 80’s including "Stool Pigeon", "Annie, I'm Not Your Daddy" and "I'm a Wonderful Thing, Baby” and their songs have been sampled by Ghostface Killah, M.I.A., Cee Lo Green, and the Avalanches to name a few. Still touring globally and with a sound as relevant today as 30 years ago the Kid Creole credo is best summed up by August Darnell himself, “The beauty of music is its possibilities for mutation, and that mutation represents a larger global ideal: global coexistence.” We can’t think of better ¡VAMOS! act!
