Tribu Baharú
"What do you get when you cross Colombian folk music, Congolese soukous, Haitian kompa, zouk, calypso, mbaqanga, soca, rap, reggae and the joy of being Afro-Colombian? Tribu Baharú!! Founded in 2010 in Bogotá, Tribu Baharú is a high-energy Afro-Champeta music crew from Colombia’s Caribbean coast. Champeta is an infectious, exuberant dance music that gloriously reflects the rebelious spirit of solidarity of Afro-Colombia today. Don't miss this unique band in their Bay Area debut and bring your dancing shoes! This is why we live in the Bay Area!" - John Santos

Founded in 2009, Tribu Baharú is an Afro-Champeta music crew from Colombia’s Caribbean coast who are influenced by the “picó” (pick-up or sound system) culture present in many Caribbean countries. Champeta (originally a term that refers to a fisherman’s knife) is an infectious dance music influenced by Colombian folk music, Congolese soukous, Haitian kompa, zouk, calypso, mbaqanga, soca, rap, and reggae. The band’s mission is to convey the joy of being Afro-Colombian through exuberant dance, using music as their vehicle, and change negative perceptions of Champeta culture by sharing positive messages through music.
Raices
Contemporary (Latino) American Music
Curated by John Santos


A concert series of diverse Latino (American) music representing hemispheric creativity in a wide range of formats interpreted by several of the most dynamic interpreters in the field. The term America in its true sense refers to North, South and Central America as well as the Caribbean islands. Accordingly, Latin American music defies brief descriptions. Folk syles and rhythms in traditional and evolutionary settings, dance music and jazz play seminal roles in this series.
