Album Notes

Our main source of inspiration are Cumbia music and Riverside musics from different regions of Colombia. The way we play and orchestrate our cumbias might be different to what you are used to hearing these days. We use Tuba and the traditional Alegre drum found in Cumbia and Gaita ensambles, which give the music a different flavor and an irresistible sound. We have a background in folkloric musics and enjoy the power and expressivity found in these instruments, they make you bounce! The clarinet and the accordion can interact and complement each other in many ways and their versatility allow us to feel at home around various genres and grooves. The electric guitar and the drum-set complement our sound adding "bite" and power to our ensamble. The comping parts we made for the guitar as well as the grooves designed for these songs are all carefully crafted to support and drive the band to even higher grounds of expressivity and inspiration.

So, what is Riverside Music? Well, besides Cumbia, there are many other genres to be found in Colombia's rural regions. In this album we feature rhythms such as: Currulao, Aguabajo, Porro Chocoano, Levanta Polvo, and Saporrondó, which are found along the Cauca and Atrato rivers in the Pacific coast of the country. We love creating melodies and grooves inspired in these rhythms and genres, and because we want to honor, play and share these sounds with you, we named the group Cumbia RIVER Band. :)

Here are both the repertoire featured in the album and the name of the rhythms we work with. Enjoy!
