Bumaranga, a word that African slaves brought to Colombia used to designate certain musical groups. It was only natural that Juan Sebastian Quiros chose this name to designate his Afro-Colombian music fusion project. Bumaranga is a project that offers a mix of percussions and typical Colombian flutes with a modern touch brought by electric instruments.

The result is a fusion of tones coming from the roots of Afro-Colombian music and its essence, as well as the African and indigenous influence marked by the penetrating and very rhythmic rhythms. The result is a rich music, with authentic sounds, where the attractive rhythms offered by traditional drums such as the “tambora” and the “alegre” drum stand out.

With rhythms like those of Cumbia, Puya, Tambora and Mapalé, each presentation of the Bumaranga group is an invitation to discover the modern musical flavors of Colombia.

Bumaranga carries out conservation work for Afro-Colombian music in Canada. It intends to share the cultural richness of Afro-Métis music born in South America, by contributing to the musical diversity of Canada.

The group won the Syli d'Or of the 7th edition of the Syli d'Or of world music (Club Balattou - Montreal), the Radio CIBL Radio-Montreal prize and the Coup de Coeur of the Francofolies Festival in the music showcase mixed in 2013. Thanks to the 2013 Vivacité Montréal grant awarded by the Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec, Bumaranga produced his first album called Cumbia Electrizante.
