On Northside KUISi Vol 3, Beny Esguerra and New Tradition Music incorporate hip-hop elements such as beatboxing, emceeing/spoken-word and turntablism with Colombian Afro-Indigenous música-de-gaita, champeta and modern cumbia. As with the previous two volumes, the current album delivers an urgent call for justice, environmental healing, and respect for ancestors and land treaties.
