Las Guaracheras

Since its formation in 2017, Las Guaracheras, the Colombian all-women salsa ensemble, has pursued its mission to elevate the female voice in Afro-Latin music and to build a more inclusive, diverse, and respectful space in which we all fit. The electrifying rhythms and explosive performances by these six world-class musical artists have captivated audiences across the globe, on stages and in festivals such as Salsa al Parque in Bogotá, Colombia; Portamérica Latitudes in Guadalajara, Mexico; Las Fiestas del Pitic in Hermosillo, Mexico; Sunfest in London, Ontario, Canada; Feria de Cali, Sevijazz, the Colsubsidio Theater in Bogotá; BIME Spain; Madrid; Barcelona; and they closed last year with a presentation before 12,000 people in the Zócalo of Mexico City. Performed on vibraphone, percussion, bass, piano, and vocals, the music of Las Guaracheras communicates joy, memory, and transformation while encouraging listeners to dance, sing, and reflect on the feelings that music inspires.
