Hailing from Bogotá, Colombia, Tribu Baharú is an Afro-champeta music crew whose sound has evolved from Colombia’s Caribbean coast and is influenced by the "Pico" (sound system) culture of Barranquilla and Cartagena. Founded in 2009, Tribu Baharú has evolved to become - arguably - the most important Afro-Champeta ensemble on the current international scene. Recently featured prominently in Shakira’s Halftime Show performance at the 2020 Superbowl, Champeta derives it’s name from the knife used by fishermen to remove fish scales and describes the music of Colombia's Atlantic Coast – which has based it’s rhythms from Colombian folk music, Central African Soukous-Rhumba (Congo), South Africa’s Soweto Township-Jive, and other Carribbean originated musics such as zouk, calipso, soca, compa and reggae. In recent years, Tribu Baharu has toured extensively throughout the world and has collaborated with such diverse musical artists as New Orleans’ Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Congolese performers such as Diblo Dibala, L’Orchestre Afrisa International and Kanda Bongo Man, Kenyan legends Les Mangalepa and Louisiana Creole zydeco performer Nathan & the Zydeco Cha Chas. “There are very few guarantees in life. But one of them must — must! — be that as soon as you hear "Made in Tribu Baharú," you'll start moving. (I promise.)” - NPR Music
