      A1. Most of our songs have elements of Latin-American and especially Colombian Folk music, like Bambuco, Pasillo, or Currulao, rhythms from the Andean Zone and the West Coast of Colombia. Having an international audience has allowed us to share this local music with people from other latitudes, but most importantly, we have inspired many children of Colombia to sing traditional Colombian songs again! Songs that were considered by some as ‘music from the past’.

Melodies that make you cry, harmonies that make you fall in love, rhythms that make you want to move
