La Perla is an Afro-Colombian folk music band based in Bogota and formed 15 years ago by women interested in rhythms of “Gaita”, Bullerengue and its derived rhythms such as: Bullerengue Sentao, Chalupa, Fandango de Lengua, Gaita Corrida, Merengue, Porro, Puya, and Cumbia.

La Perla’s instrumentation is traditional and is constituted by:  Tambor alegre, Llamador, Palmas, Totuma, Tambora, Gaita and Maracas; voice and dance are fundamental elements.

La Perla also mixes Caribbean rhythms such as Champeta with Dominican merengue and introduces urban elements like the beat box.
