PUERTO CANDELARIA

JOYOUS CUMBIA PARTY SOUNDS FROM COLOMBIA

Sometimes the reality is more absurd than you ever could have imagined. Puerto Candelaria took this as their starting point in the year 2000 when they founded the band in Colombia. Puerto Candelaria stands for an imaginary place where fantasy and reality meets. They use absurdist lyrics and festive music to criticize the political situation in their country, inspired by true stories. Puerto Candelaria takes on the part of the medieval joker forcing Colombia to look at themselves in a laugh mirror. The six band members use traditional Colombian rhythms like cumbia as their point of departure, letting jazz, pop and rock influence them to come to a new danceable and exuberant sound.
