"In a big-band-like orchestra of instruments -including the bombo and marimba - influences of salsa, jazz and even funk meet folkloric roots."
About This Show
While Colombia is often synonymous with Cumbia, the music from the Pacific Coast, like that of Herencia de Timbiqui, remains largely unexplored. Herencia de Timbiqui works to preserve the ancestral roots of the marimba de chonta, and traditional instruments such as the bombo, cununos and the guasa and combines them with a powerful band, including energetic vocals, brass, keyboards, and guitar.
