Come and experience the sounds of Colombia! Aire is a multicultural group guided by Francisco Castillo, a pioneer of Colombian traditional music in Australia – with years of experience performing around the country.
They are influenced by the music of the Pacific region of Colombia, reviving traditional sounds that carry ancestry & roots from the African diaspora. From the Pacific region they bring rhythms like bunde, porro, currulao, using traditional instruments such as Marimba, cununo, guasa, bombo. From the Caribbean they perform cumbia, bullerengue & champeta, and for these rhythms they use tambora, maracas, llamador, alegre & gaitas. These traditional sounds blended with guitar & drums create a modern fusion that is intoxicating & uplifting.
