Chirimia Baru

 

Chirimia Baru was formed by music students in 2015 looking to rescue and spread the richness of Colombian music. having a contemporary air and musical integrity of afro-rhythms, using traditional instruments such as marimba de chonta, tambora, tambor alegre, gaita and maracas to tell stories and tales from the mystic land of the eternal spring.

In its trajectory Chirimía Barú has been keeping rich musical traditions alive. With its high energy performance, the group has established itself as an authentic, worthy representative of Colombian music in Canada.
