NYC South American Music Festival

Monday, January 14


Featuring Sofia Rei, Juancho Herrera, Sofia Tosello/Tangolandó, Gregorio Uribe Big Band, the first edition of the NYC South American Music Festival celebrates a new movement in the US: music rooted in the folklore from the various countries of South America, as they meet with pop, rock, jazz and a hint of electronica.

The actors are young artists from Argentina, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela and Chile converging in New York City. A generation of musicians that has blurred the boundaries between their musical cultures and carved out a renovated identity of the South American diaspora.

These ground-breaking artists have been gaining recognition at the national and international levels. Each of them has crafted a distinct sound, whether it is tango with Afro-Peruvian rhythms, Colombian cumbia and mapalé in a big band setting, merengue caraqueño into a hip hop groove, or multi-track vocal grooves over a chacarera, using traditional and native instruments such as the charango, the cuatro, the bombo leguero, the cajon, the gaitas, as well as contemporary and electro-acoustic instruments. The result is substantial, uplifting, poignant and passionate, appealing to the traditional and progressive sensibilities alike.
