For the first time in the UK, one of the most renowned Colombian bands in Europe, La Chiva Gantiva. Born in Brussels in 2005 and mainly composed by Colombian artists, its music is inspired by afro-Colombian rhythms and enriched by all kinds of modern sounds, like rock and funk. The band mixes cumbia, salsa, and other Colombian rythms such as champeta, chirimia and sanjuanero, to name a few. Originality and innovation are perhaps the best attributes associated with the band, which is constantly surprising audiences with their live performances and their inexhaustible energy.
