Guacamayo Tropical (CO / Madrid)
The Colombian duo Guacamayo have been taking all the afrolatin flavour in their suitcase, spreading the sweaty love in their wild Guacamayo Tropical parties in Madrid and their Festival Guacamayo in the mountains near Madrid. Their sessions are characterized by the integration of organic musical instruments such as Colombian gaita, tamboras and djembe, and even typical and native dances switched up with digital beats. Also, they explore new sounds created from traditional roots with a slightly digital edge. Hearty, lively rhythms and flood the crowd with a colorful wave of love, joy and Cumbia! Inspired by earthly ancestral trips, they show us a path, an idea and a project aimed at challenging the senses on all fronts, shooting out sounds explosively charged with good vibes, light and hope.

His musical universe is broader then broadway and he’s also active as a sound designer for theater and film. In his more informal playing moments he’s also known as Carrot or El sñr Naranja.
