The Bogotá-based champeta band channels the sounds and spirit of Colombia’s Caribbean coast in an energetic live show.

 

Hailing from Bogotá, Colombia, Tribu Baharú is an afro-champeta music crew whose sound has evolved from the Colombian Caribbean and is influenced by the “Pico” (sound system) culture of Barranquilla and Cartagena. Champeta is a term that refers to a knife used by fishermen to remove fish scales and has been used to describe the music of Colombia’s Atlantic Coast that have taken its influences from Colombian folk music, Central African Soukous-Rhumba (congo), Soweto Township-Jive, and other Carribbean-originated musics such as zouk, calipso, soca, compa, and reggae.

 

“There are very few guarantees in life. But one of them must—must!—be that as soon as you hear ‘Made in Tribu Baharú,’ you’ll start moving. (I promise.)” —NPR Music
