About this clip:
Colombia’s Monsieur Periné perform “Cumbia Valiente” from their 2023 album “Bolero Apocalíptico” during their concert on December 29, 2023, part of the 2023-24 Season, broadcast on Fridays Live.
About the concert:
“One of the most exciting emerging artists in Latin music” (LA Weekly), the 2015 Latin GRAMMY winner for Best New Artist brings their singular hybrid that merges the simmering French jazz manouche style of Django Reinhardt with dance-inspiring Latin American rhythms to ring in the New Year.
Formed over a decade ago in Bogotá, Colombia by singer Catalina García and guitarists Santiago Prieto and Jairo Alfonso, the band has cultivated a fervent following by blending the spirit of 1930s music with the joyous and sophisticated sounds of contemporary Latin American pop — a worldly, boundary-blurring approach places them in the same echelon as contemporaries Natalia Lafourcade, Troker, Carla Morrison, and Bomba Estereo.
García’s effervescent vocals match perfectly with a uniquely colorful visual style masterminded by Colombian artist José Arboleda in their surreal album art and concert clothing, and the band has released three albums including their self-released 2012 debut Hecho a Mano, the Latin GRAMMY-winning 2015 follow-up Caja De Musica, and their newest Sony Music session, the GRAMMY-nominated Encanto Tropical. Monsieur Periné returns to help us usher in 2024 with the hope and joy we need now more than ever.
