Rebolu - "Los herederos (The Heirs)" (Official Audio)
Listen to the official audio of "Los herederos (The Heirs)" from Rebolu's upcoming Smithsonian Folkways album, 'Mi Herencia (My Heritage)' 'Mi Herencia (My Heritage)' is available May 13th, 2022, on CD and digital/streaming. Pre-order/stream: Smithsonian Folkways: Bandcamp: All other platforms: “Rebolu is a party!” exclaims the intrepid group. “We are a confluence of sound and energy reflecting the intensity of our urban life and the need to create music for the world based on our folklore and heritage." Leaders in the New Colombian Music movement of New York City, their adopted home, Rebolu’s vibrant, salsa-inspired music has its roots in the diverse Afrocentric rhythms of Colombia’s Caribbean coast. On their Smithsonian Folkways debut Mi Herencia (My Heritage), composer Ronald Polo, tambor alegre master Morris Cañate, percussionist Erica “Kika” Parra, lead singer Johanna Castañeda, and their top-drawer bandmembers bring a battery of percussion, commanding gaita flute melodies, and make-you-move vocal stylings into the spotlight as they exuberantly reinvigorate generations-old traditions.
