Las Guaracheras

Their songs navigate the sounds of the piano, bass, congas, timbales, vibraphone and vocals. Their lyrics are a celebration of life, love and feminine strength.” —La Vaga Comunicaciones

Las Guaracheras is an all-women salsa sextet born in the city of Cali, Colombia in 2017. The ensemble´s cultural and artistic objective is to uplift a female voice within Afro-Latin music and build a more inclusive, diverse and respectful cultural space for all. Their music communicates joy, memory and transformation. With vibraphone, percussion, bass, piano and vocals, Las Guaracheras present an explosive show that provokes dancing, singing as well as reflection.

Among multiple presentations in the best salsa forums in Colombia, Las Guaracheras have performed on stages and festivals such as: Salsa al Parque in Bogotá, Portamérica Latitudes in Guadalajara, Mexico, Las Fiestas del Pitic in Hermosillo, Mexico, Sunfest in Canada, Feria de Cali, Sevijazz, the Colsubsidio Theater in Bogotá, BIME Spain, Madrid, and Barcelona and they closed last year with a presentation before 12,000 people in the Zócalo of Mexico City.

This engagement of Las Guaracheras is made possible in part through the Performing Arts Global Exchange program of Mid Atlantic Arts with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
