Afro-Colombian bands keeping deep connection to African roots

Kombilesa Mí

This nine-member rap collective began in 2016 as a truce between rappers who were at ‘war’.

The ‘rap folkloric Palenquero’ collective does a little bit of Caribbean beats like cumbia, mapalé, champeta, bullerengue, son palenquero, puya, African soukous and hip-hop all sang in the Palenquero language. 

Their music carries messages geared towards ending violence and they lend their voice to the fight against discrimination of Afro-Colombians in Colombia and Afro-women’s rights.
