Grupo Rebolu is an Afro-Colombian musical ensemble comprised of some of the finest Colombian musicians in the United States. The group was created to promote the rich musical traditions of their ancestors; the Afro-descendants of Colombia's Caribbean coast. It is their belief that these folkloric traditions should continually evolve over time and with the ideas of new generations of folklorists. This belief is surely reflected in their music.
From traditional songs to original compositions, the entirety of Rebolu's repertoire is loaded with energy, history and danceability. Their unique reinterpretations of traditional Afro-Colombian rhythms include Gaita, Tambora, Chalupa and Bullerengue, among others. Their original compositions forge new paths for Colombian music while respectfully remaining faithful to its ancestral roots. In the process, Grupo Rebolu creates a truly unique musical and cultural experience.
