Very Be Careful

They may live in LA, but their hearts are in Colombia. Led by singing accordionist Ricardo Guzman and his bassist brother, Arturo, Very Be Careful are specialise in vallenato, a loping Colombian folk music that – along with its close relative, cumbia – has been enjoying a newfound fashionability of late. The quintet will be wrapping up their ten-date Japan tour at a sweaty all-night party in Shinjuku this weekend, where they're joined by a musical polyglot selection including dub trumpeter Kazufumi Kodama, ska/reggae band Ichikawa Michihisa Session, the Caribbean Dandy DJ crew and others.
