One of the leading bands in Colombia’s new music scene, Monsieur Periné won the Latin Grammy Award for “Best New Artist” and earned a Grammy Award nomination for their most recent album, Caja de Música. Rooted in gypsy jazz and celebrating the tradition of Django Reinhardt, Monsieur Periné’s fresh style adds a variety of Latin elements to the mix. Incorporating genres like cumbia, son, bolero, tango, and samba, the band performs on traditional South American instruments from the charango, to the bandoneon, and Latin percussion. Their airy yet virtuosic instrumental foundation connects 1930s Paris with the youthful spirit of modern Bogotá. It’s the perfect backdrop to showcase Catalina Garcia’s sugar-sweet, sunshiny vocals at the very center of their signature “swing a la Colombiana” style.
