Grupo Rebolu

March, 2015

Childhood friends Ronald Polo and Morris Cañate wanted to promote the rich traditional music of their ancestors—the Afro-descendants of Colombia’s Caribbean coast, so they created Grupo Rebolú. From traditional songs to original compositions that remain faithful to these ancestral roots, their music is rich in energy, history, and danceability. Their original compositions and arrangements of classic Afro-Colombian music create a modern cultural event rooted in the Carnaval de Barranquilla. It is their belief that these folkloric traditions should continually evolve over time and with the ideas of new generations of folklorists, a belief which is surely reflected in Grupo Rebolú's music.
