CHIA’s Dance Party is a New York City-based Quintet. The band delivers a unique musical experience where infectious danceable grooves mix harmoniously with extensive compositional and improvisational work. The band performs original material inspired by the Colombian rhythmic and melodic traditions, yet explores different genres and compositional approaches. All of these sounds are catalyzed by musical director, Martín Vejarano on Drums and compositions.

Sonidos Colombianos presents the music from one of the most culturally diverse countries of Latin America: Colombia! Every Friday night join us as we explore the sounds from the legendary world of Macondo. Our bilingual musical tour is guaranteed to include not only cumbia, but also the guitar-based bambuco from the Andean region, the harp llanero music from the Eastern Plains, the marimba-infused currulao from the Pacific Region, and the accordion-driven vallenato of the North Atlantic Coast. Sonidos Colombianos also features the big band music from the 50′s, to the newer afro-caribbean music called champeta.

“Uno de los fenómenos musicales más relevantes de los últimos años en Nueva York ha sido el florecimiento de una vibrante escena colombiana. Desde la revalorización y redescubrimiento de la impresionante variedad de géneros afrocolombianos hasta fusiones de cumbia con rock y jazz…”

New York, NY – Traditional, jazz, rock, dance, classical, and urban sounds collide as Pablo and Anna Mayor present the 9th annual Encuentro NYC Colombian Music festival. Colombian musicians unite on one stage as they do each year, in a celebration of Colombia’s rich traditions and modern innovations told through the voice of New York-based Colombian artists. The festival will feature six hours of back-to-back performances featuring the rhythms of cumbia, puya, currulao, joropo, and bambuco, among a myriad other styles, both as they have developed in New York and in their traditional root forms.
This year, the energy will reach new heights with the newest voice on the world stage, MAKUSoundsystem (featured at Globalfest 2011). Their driving rhythms are grounded in Afro-Colombian traditions and their gaitas come from Colombia’s indigenous heritage (like their name), as they present their music with the freedom of young Colombians hailing from urban Queens.
The annual Encuentro/Encounter of Colombian Musicians in New York music festival, founded by Colombian bandleader, pianist, and composer Pablo Mayor and his wife flutist Anna Povich de Mayor, continues its effort to provide a platform for Colombian artists in New York to present their art, while bringing these treasures to the attention of the international audience.
The festival coincides with PAMAR’S Latin American Culture Week, using the opportunity to showcase Colombia’s rich musical heritage and developments to the broader international and Latin American community. The six-hour extravaganza will begin with a dinner set featuring the sophisticated Andean sounds of Alejandro Flórez-Tibaguí, gaita, bullerengue, and other Afro-Colombian rhythms with Grupo Rebolú (for those who wish to dance from the beginning), New Orleans jazz-with-a-Colombian twist (drummer Martin Vejarano’s Chia’s Dance Party), Caribbean vallenato with Alejandro Zuleta Vallenato Collective, and other artists ranging from rock to classical guitar (including Lucía Pulido’s right-hand man Sebastián Cruz and his Cheap Landscape trio as well as virtuoso guitarist Nilko Andreas Guarín), gradually transforming as the night unfolds into an all-out dance party with Pablo Mayor’s driving Folklore Urbano Orchestra and the wildly fun Gregorio Uribe Big Band. Special guests to include Limon Dance Company’s Daniel Fetecua and his Pajarillo Pinta’o Dance Company. The energy in the room will erupt once MAKU takes over as the closing act, and the audience is guaranteed to leave dancing!
