La Chiva Gantiva

Monde Stage
Petit Parterre, Corner of De Maisonneuve Blvd. and Clark St.
  • July 1, 10 p.m.

When three Colombian immigrants in Brussels decide to make music together and affirm their shared cultural roots, you get La Chiva Gantiva: a unique modern jazz with Afro-Colombian accents, enhanced by a joyous blend of influences from here, there and everywhere. This past November, the group released its fiery 4th album, Despegue—Spanish for “Takeoff”. Consider yourselves forewarned!
