“Balsa de Fuego” gathers the Caribbean Cumbia; the Joropo from the Colombo-Venezuelan plains; the Currulao from the Colombo-Ecuadorian Pacific coast; and the jazz from North America.
This new project lead by Colombian composer Juan Sebastian Monsalve (known as one of the precursors of the New Colombian Music with his band Curupira) assembles a diverse range of musicians from the New York music scene, achieving a powerful contemporary sound with strong roots in tradition.
