Show Info

9th Annual Encuentro NYC Colombian Music Festival w/ Lucia Pulido, Sebastián Cruz Cheap Landscape Trio, Martin Vejarano-Chia's Dance Party, Nilko Andreas Guarín, Alejandro Flórez- Tibaguí, Alejandro Zuleta Vallenato Collective, Pablo Mayor's Folklore Urbano Orchestra, Daniel Fetecua and Pajarillo Pinta'o Dance Company, Gregorio Uribe Big Band, and M.A.K.U. Soundsystem 11.10.12 Mayor present a new spin on their 9th annual Encuentro NYC Colombian Music festival. Encuentro veterans unite as they do every year to present COLOMBIAN MUSIC on one stage, in a celebration of Colombia’s traditions and modern innovations…but this year, the energy will reach new heights with the newest voice on the world stage, MAKU Soundsystem (Globalfest 2011). Their driving rhythms are grounded in Afro-Colombian traditions and their gaitas come from Colombia’s indigenous heritage (as well as 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 in 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.
