The first NYC South American Music Festival took place at Zinc Bar during the APAP NYC conference and celebrates a new movement in the US: music rooted in the folklore from the various countries of South America, as they meet with pop, rock, jazz and a hint of electronica. The actors are young artists from Argentina, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela and Chile converging in New York City. A generation of musicians that has blurred the boundaries between their musical cultures and carved out a renovated identity of the South American diaspora. These ground-breaking artists have been gaining recognition at the national and international levels. Each of them has crafted a distinct sound, whether it is tango with Afro-Peruvian rhythms, Colombian cumbia and mapalé in a big band setting, merengue caraqueño into a hip hop groove, or multi-track vocal grooves over a chacarera, using traditional and native instruments such as the charango, the cuatro, the bombo leguero, the cajon, the gaitas, as well as contemporary and electro-acoustic instruments. The result is substantial, uplifting, poignant and passionate, appealing to the traditional and progressive sensibilities alike.

From the line up of the first edition of the festival was born EL COLECTIVO SUR, which is taking the concept of the South American festival on the road. Click here to find out more.
