Herencia de Timbiquí
At the Twisp Community Center

Herencia de Timbiquí is one of the most exciting tropical music acts out of Colombia.  WorldMusicCentral.org

While Colombia is often synonymous with Cumbia, the music from the Pacific Coast, like that of Herencia de Timbiquí, remains largely unexplored. Herencia de Timbiquí works to preserve the ancestral roots of the marimba de chonta, and traditional instruments such as the bombo, cununos and the guasá and combines them with a powerful band, including energetic vocals, brass, keyboards, and guitar. The currulao ensemble features exceptional hand percussion on drums that resemble West African djembes, beautifully honoring traditional regional music styles.

Herencia de Timbiquí was recently featured on NPR in their Guided Tour of Colombia.

NPR took a long drive along the mountain roads, high planes, tropical coastlines and large urban centers of Colombia and selected Herencia de Timbiqui as one of the top choices. "Colombia is a diverse country reflecting the legacies of Spain, Africa, indigenous cultures and a mix of the above. So the music is a fascinating mashup  one of the most compelling blends you'll find anywhere on the planet.

The Afro-descendant Herencia de Timbiquí caught the attention of USAID, and featured the group in a 2014 documentary highlighting not only what the artists represent to the Colombian music scene, but also the social challenges faced on the Colombian Pacific coast where the town of Timbiquí is located. Herencia brings together exceptional artistry and a strong commitment to social issues, offering workshops and outreach to benefit underserved populations in Colombia. The ensemble has performed throughout South and Central America, in Europe and at NYU Abu Dhabi.
