Islandman collaborate with Ecuadorian singer Huaira on newest single

Turkish band Islandman have collaborated with Ecuadorian singer Huaira on their latest single ‘Amarnos Ahora’.

Released on June 29, it’s a blend of Islandman’s exploration of traditional Turkish folk music rhythms with more of a flamenco twist. ‘Amarnos Ahora’ means ‘love us now’ in Spanish; the track also features percussion work by the recently deceased Bongo Entp., aka Jacob Andersen.
