La Chiva Gantiva brought to you by UEPA COLOMBIA

La Chiva Gantiva

LA CHIVA GANTIVA starts in Brussels with a group of Colombian percussionists playing together, in order to feel closer to their homeland and its rich musical heritage. Pushed by a desire to assert their roots and reproduce Colombian rhythms of yesteryear, like less well known rhythms such as the «champeta», the «chirimia» and the «mapalé», LA CHIVA GANTIVA uses traditional Caribbean instruments such as «la tambora», «el alegre», «el llamador» and «maracones». LA CHIVA GANTIVA does not stop there, they also incorporate instruments like the bass guitar, the clarinet and the saxophone which reflect the diverse influences of the group: Colombian (with the likes of Toto la Moposina, Lucho Bermudez and Petrona Martinez), Latin (Fania All Stars, Irakere), African (Fela Kuti and Tony Allen), Jazz (Lionel Hampton), Funk (the legendary James Brown) and Rock (Red Hot Chili Peppers and Rage Against the Machine).

The result of this soundclash is a unique musical style and explosive on-stage energy, that has opened their path to many big festivals throughout Europe. Since 2005, La Chiva Gantiva has played in the biggest festivals in Belgium, Portugal, Holland and Germany. La Chiva Gantiva continues to grow and to build upon their compelling and inspiring musical universe.

The French Horn

French Horn's music is not only meant to be heard, but experienced as well. This is the passionate driving force that inspires the sexy, high-energy sound of the Miami based via Paris band The French Horn. The band creates the driving force behind their music with their uninhibited blending of styles and creativity. With their musical roots ranging from jazz, ska, and polka the band produces a surprisingly smooth mixture of progressive Gypsy/Parisian/Circus-vibe/Swing/ World Beat tunes.
