Marimbondo Gigante
Suppose Jimi Hendrix didn’t die choking on his last meal at age 27, but instead took an incognito walkabout in Latin-America, resulting in the birth of the genre Tropical Rock. Marimbondo Gigante brings this meeting between rock and Latin-American rhythm to the northern hemisphere, with three-part harmonies and lyrics in English, Spanish and Portuguese.

Thomas Reite – vocal and bass
Torbjørn Sandvik – guitar and background vocals
Ole Andreas Olafsrud – drums and background vocals
award winning reggae/dancehall/afro/hip hop artist from Gambia

Born as Alhagie Singateh in 1982 in a small riverine community in the hinterlands of The Gambia, Sing-a-teh started singing at a very tender age doing acapellas in street squares to performing at school events. Sing-a-teh was already on the track to creating a hobby that would eventually lead to a life-long passion for him.
He has recorded albums in the Gambia and the US and is currently recording new material in Norway
