The seventh annual Encounter of
Colombian Musicians in New York
, to feature nearly 20 of New
York’s renowned Colombian musical ensembles as well as special guests
from Colombia, will convene upon one of NYC’s prestigous cultural
institutions this year, turning Harlem’s El Museo del Barrio into a
two-day center for Colombian music and culture on Manhattan’s upper
east-side.  This celebrated event will highlight Colombia’s musical
treasures, its rhythms like cumbia, currulao, vallenato, and bambuco,
among countless others, on the eve of the Bicentennial year of Colombian
independence.
 
The Encounter, or Encuentro,
continues to inspire, educate, and awe its audiences with its varied
artist showcases, ranging from the poetry of Marta Gómez, to the fire of
virtuoso percussionist Samuel Torres, to the pure joy of the
Afro-Colombian music of Diego Obregon’s marimba de chonta, to the more
subtle sounds of Spanish-derived Andean guitar music this year featuring
Plectro Trio direct from Colombia. Dance bands like La Cumbiamba eNeYe,
Pablo Mayor’s renowned orchestra Folklore Urbano, and more
jazz-oriented and avant-garde veterans like Hector Martignon and Lucía
Pulido, reveal how Colombian music has taken its place at the forefront
of the world music scene here in New York City and beyond.
 
Encuentro
highlights the finest contemporary and traditional Colombian music,
brought together on the same stage for one of New York’s distinct “hot
ticket” events. Encuentro
developed from an all-day event organized in Bogotá in 1998,
when bandleader Pablo Mayor was directing the jazz program at the
Universidad Javeriana. Mayor had students present music utilizing
Colombian rhythms and melodies, with results so productive and enjoyable
that Mayor made it the model when organizing a New York event in 2003.

CongasThat first Encuentro took
place during a visit by the Gaiteros of San Jacinto, paying homage to
that group’s storied history playing Colombian folkloric music and
showcasing talented acts such as singer Lucía Pulido, jazz pianist
Hector Martignón, the dance bands Folklore Urbano and La Cumbiamba
eNeYe, and Iván Benavides. Thus was born an annual event uniting the
work of Colombian musicians in New York, bringing them before an
international audience of all ages, eager to appreciate the beauty and
diversity of this unique culture.
 
The VII Encounter of Colombian Musicians in New York will
feature two evening ticketed showcases, as well as a free afternoon of
educational workshop-presentations and a lecture by a leading
ethnomusicologist as a part of El Museo’s Target FREE Super Sabados
