Monsieur Periné [from Colombia] @ Kuumbwa Jazz Center // Santa Cruz

2 shows! 6pm and 8:30pm.

One of the leading bands in Colombia’s new music scene, Monsieur Periné won the Latin Grammy Award for Best New Artist and earned a Grammy nomination for their most recent album, Caja de Musica.

Rooted in gypsy jazz and celebrating the tradition of Django Reinhardt, Monsieur Periné’s fresh style adds a variety of Latin elements to the mix. Incorporating genres like cumbia, son, bloreo, tango and samba the band performs on traditional South American instruments, from the charango to the bandoneon.

Their airy yet virtuosic foundation connects 1930s Paris with the youthful spirit of modern Bogota. It’s the perfect backdrop to showcase Catalina Garcia’s sugar-sweet, sunshine-y vocals at the core of their signature “swing a la Colombiana” style. With the help of illustrator José Arboleda and their own fashion designer, the band has created a world of their own that comes to life in their music, their artwork and their performances.
