Established in the mid 1950s, Colombian band Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto have been tradition-carriers of their native country’s gaita and cumbia music.
Their folkloric music preserves the traditional rhythms and sounds which are a product of the Colombian Indigenous, Spanish and Afro-Colombian heritage.
The Latin Grammy winners, are coming back to London to show why they are one of the most influential musical groups of traditional music in Colombia and worldwide.
Gaita is a term used to name a Colombian musical instrument, various musical genres, and an ensemble (the conjunto de gaitas), all from the Caribbean region of Colombia, from where much commercially available Colombian traditional and popular music comes. The gaiteros meaning those who play the gaita flute and San Jacinto for the town the group originated from San Jacinto in the Colombian Department of Bolívar.
In the last ten years LOS GAITEROS DE SAN JACINTO have performed at most important festivals and venues of World Music.
