Emilsen Pacheco with Bulla En El Barrio

Emilsen Pacheco

Emilsen Pacheco, born in Uveros and settled in San Juan, is one of the acclaimed master Bullerengue musicians in the Colombian Urabá region. A countryman, fisherman and machetero, possessor of the legacy of the Afro families arrived from the port of Cartagena to the vast area of ​​northwestern Colombia, whose life has been nuanced by multiple musical expressions.

Bulla En El Barrio

Bulla En El Barrio started in October 2014 and is currently comprised by fourteen people who have been consistently meeting to learn and practice bullerengue. Our hope is to continue creating a fraternal and cultural bond with all the communities where we perform. As of today, the group has performed publicly at Pioneer Works (Brooklyn), Corona Plaza (Queens) in collaboration with Queens Museum, Terrazzo 7 Bar, Barbés Bar (Brooklyn- Current artistic residency performing the last Monday of each month), TSION Café (Harlem- Performing every two months), The Encounter of Colombian Music NYC (Le Poisson Rouge), Brooklyn Music Folk Festival, AfroRoots NYC and with the organizations Little Sisters LLC (Manhattan) and Main Chance NYC in Collaboration with Sister Circle. We are also exited to mention two of our events for this summer 2016 as part of the Afro-Latino Festival NYC and Mi Gente Music Festival (Bronx).
