CHOTA MADRE is a New York based band that brings energy through the fusion of traditional Ecuadorian Bomba from El Valle del Chota and contemporary rhythms. CHOTA MADRE keeps us aware of the cultural heritage of Ecuadorian music.
Ecuadorian Bomba was born and flourished from the cultural exchange between the indigenous, mestizo and African communities living in proximity in the Carchi and Imbabura provinces of Ecuador. Bomba is characterized by the percussion bomba drum, handmade by the African descendants living in the area. Together the requinto guitar, the guiro, and male and female voices transmit color, feeling and passion to the people.
