Romperayo sounds like a fast moving musical journey through Colombian tropical folklore, a mischievous and modern interpretation of the up-tempo rhythms of descarga and the psychedelic sounds of 70s cumbia. Expect musical fireworks that don’t only move your hips and feet, but also direct your brain into a blissful mood.
The group is part of a new Colombian music scene that re-interprets their roots in a fascinating way, combining both traditional rhythms and modern electronics. Other bands from this movement are Meridian Brothers, Frente Cumbiero and Los Pirañas amongst others. The scene is close-knit, there is even the occasional overlap between some of the bands: Pedro Ojeda, drummer of Romperayo, for example, is also the drummer of Los Pirañas.
Their frantic energy will give audiences no other option than to watch, dance and be happy!
