Alma Andina
Alma Andina
Minneapolis/St. Paul-based band Alma Andina combines traditional instruments from South America such as the pan flutes, charango, and bombo, among others to perform in an array of Latin styles such as Cumbia, Salsa, Guajira, Reggaeton, Reggae, and more. This "Electro Andean Party" brings a mix of musical flavors and rhythms, inviting the community to dance, party, meet new people and cultures, and ultimately, to feel free and unified.

Ten year veterans on the scene, Alma Andina are always evolving their instrumentation, line up, and sound. Their diverse line up of musicians includes Vladimir Garrido and Nicolas Muñoz from Chile, Miguel Gonzales of Mexico, Fernando Quiñones from Puerto Rico, and Lewis Hill II, Zach Eyl, and Zack Lewis from the USA.
Los Rolling Ruanas
Los Rolling Ruanas
adjective | \’ro- lo\ | (Colombia)
: of Bogota
: from Bogota

noun | ru·a·na | \rü-’ä-na\
: a woolen covering resembling a poncho, worn by the peasants of the Colombian Andes.

Rock ‘n’ roll was born out of sheer boldness. Blending blues and country music together—both rural genres—was one of the most revolutionary acts in history and it gave birth to one of the most amazing and wild music genres.

Hailing from Bogota, Colombia—a place that oozes music creativity—Los Rolling Ruanas came to destroy preconceptions and, loyal to their legacy, put rural back in rock ‘n’ roll. Yeah, rural!

Their sound is a tribute to Colombian Andean peasants, their culture and their music: carranga*. Los Rolling Ruanas took the typical acoustic instruments and made them rock harder than ever. What could be more rock ‘n’ roll than redefining rock ‘n’ roll, huh?

The four fellas who put their ruanas on and made people realize carranga has always been cool are:
Juan Diego Moreno: is the main singer and keeps the beat by scraping the guacharaca
Fer Cely: rocks the strings of his requinto and sings backing vocals
Luis González: ferociously plays the acoustic guitar and sings backing vocals
Jorge Vinasco: plays the Colombian-born 12-string tiple and sings backing vocals

* By the way, carranga [ka’raga] means ‘carcass’. Ain’t that cool?
