Chispa: Palenke Soultribe

Dance to Your Soul's Rhythm

The name of this band is Palenke Soultribe. They are an electro group who make use of Indigenous rhythms, melodies and methodologies to create sound that is technically alluring, emotionally satisfying and damned danceable too. Along with local Latin-fusion fanatics Baracutenga, they'll be gigging at the National Hispanic Culture Center on Friday, Feb. 17. Members Andres F. Erazo (Popa), Juan Diego Borda (Insectosound), Argel Cota and Clodomiro Montes have South American roots and know the canon of Caribbean dance music well enough to take it apart and put it back together in an electronic amalgam that is soulfully interactive with audience members. My favorite recording by this ensemble has a title that says it all. It's called Folkloric Dekonstruktion and has a vibrance that is quite frankly timeless. Hear all of that for yourself by paying between $12-$22 for a fine night of music and dance brought to Burque by the visionary producers responsible for Globalquerque! (August March)

A live electronic production deconstructs Afro-Colombian rhythms and blends them with modern beats, catchy bass lines and synthesized arpeggios.


Palenke Soultribe (PST), a live electronic production collective based in Los Angeles, deconstructs Afro-Colombian rhythms and blends them with modern beats, catchy bass lines, and synthesized arpeggios. Always pushing the envelope visually and conceptually, the group represents a new generation of Colombian musicians ready to break all the rules. Presented in partnership with Avokado Artists.

Opening for PST is Baracutanga, a seven-piece band – representing four different countries – that arranges traditional South American rhythms in interesting ways, such as huayño and cumbia with Middle-Eastern derbuka, or the Afro-Cuban bata and Afro-Peruvian festejo blended with Andian zampoñas
