The Bazurto All Stars: La Banda de Cartagena

Details

Join us on September 30, 2022 as we welcome the Bazurto All Stars to Flushing Town Hall all the way from Cartegena, Colombia! The Bazurto All Stars have their own unique sound which comes from the mixing of African Champeta, folkloric and electronic music with cumbia, vallenato, reggae, ska and even symphonic music. They have dubbed this fusion "La Champeta Universal" or “Universal Champeta” which has allowed champeta to cross social, cultural, and language barriers to evolve and adapt to a variety of musical styles. The result has been a string of hits like "LA MANGUERA", "EL BOLOLO", "ME FALLA EL WIFI", "LA REINA DEL BAILE" and "LA PUPILETA". This last song broke all of the rules and expectations within the genre and reached markets that more traditional champeta had never entered, becoming the official song of the Carnaval of Barranquilla (the largest after Rio) in 2016 and becoming one of the most recognized songs within Colombia in 2016 and 2017.
