Papa Orbe & los turpiales sabaneros

Fecha y hora

Monday 19


Location: Main stage

Party: Golfo de Guinea presenta

Orbe Ortiz trained as a multi-instrumentalist and producer in his native Cuba and spent much of his career in Colombia. After many years living and playing in Barcelona with different formations, now leads this prodigious orchestra composed of ten Colombian musicians installed in the city. His live is an irresistible download of rhythms from the Colombian Caribbean: cumbias, porros, bagpipes… “There is no border that can stop the curative and socializing power of this music,” they say. And they show it to the beat of congas, drums, tiple, bass, maracas, guitar, saxophones, clarinet … and some more surprises. These Sabaneros Turpiales are the best kept secret of Barcelona.
