In 2013 the duet grew into a five-piece band, honing a rich sound that could keep the people grooving and dancing on their feet and spreading the rare beautiful sounds of Colombia, Haiti, and rhythms from the African diaspora to the world. You cant help but feel the heartbeat of the distinct polyrhythmic rhythmic section, electrifying violin and guitar solos , funky bass lines and energizing dance choreography by Luisa Bastidas.
