Named after CHIA, the Moon goddess in the Pre-Columbian MUISCA Mithology
CHIA's Dance Party delivers a unique musical experience where infectious danceable grooves
mix harmoniously with extensive compositional and improvisational work.

"Martin Vejarano, leader of La Cumbiamba NY, has concocted a new project based on the sounds of traditional Colombian marching bands, but with enough of urban bastardazition and personal idiosyncracies to please a squadron of ethnomusicologists. The music is fun, driven and adventurous. It's very deeply rooted in Colombian music but not quaint, folkloric or exotic in anyway" Olivier Conan, Barbès Records

Tomando su nombre en honor a CHIA (diosa Luna en la mitología Muisca precolombina), CHIA's Dance Party presenta una experiencia musical única donde los rítmos endémicos de Colombia se mezclan armoniosamente con diversos conceptos de improvisación y un trabajo de composición altamente elaborado.

Tirant son nom en l'honneur de Chia (déesse Lune en précolombienne mythologie Muisca), Dance Party Chia présente une expérience musicale unique, où les rythmes endémique à la Colombie se marient harmonieusement avec les différents concepts d'improvisation et un travail très développé de la composition.
