CUMBIA SABANERA feat. Javi Molina & Nirk’ Molina
The band is bringing the legacy and origins of Cumbia, the rural roots style from the Montes de Maria region of Colombia’s Caribbean north, remembering Andres Landero the king of Cumbia, Los corraleros de Majagual, Lisandro Meza among others with the voice and melodies of the accordion played by Nirk Molina (Monteria), adapting the sound of this European instrument to the expressiveness of the indigenous flutes (gaitas) alongside the voice and sounds of Javi Molina (Cartagena) on Caja/ Tambora drums next to the guiro and maracas and other percussion borrowed from African traditions. The band’s fantastic sound represents the finest expression of this type of cumbia a truly Caribbean art form joined on stage by a crack squad of the finest Latin musicians in the London scene playing heavyweight Colombian-Caribbean music full of traditional Sonido sabanero, the most popular rhythms including Porro, Tambora, chande and Cumbia now a well-known genre across the world and known for its signature rhythm and introducing us into the tropical sounds of Son, paseo, puya, merengue and more..

Colombia, music is a passion that reflects the great cultural, regional and ancestral diversity of its people and geography. Much of the music is a blend of Spanish and European influences with indigenous sounds and African beats. Often dubbed the “land of a thousand rhythms,” Colombia is home to a dynamic, unforgettable and ever-evolving musical environment.
