After touring the world, publishing her albums on several countries, a Latin Grammy Award Nomination and becoming a National Legend in Colombia, Petrona Martinez releases her brand new album Las Penas Alegres. Petrona is heir to a rich history of traditional singing and dancing called bullerengue. It consists of a lead singer or cantadora composing and improvising verses while a choir is responding melodic obstinatos and traditional drums comps them.

On this tradition, the cantadora is a respected matriarch who before modern media was the main source of information in the community. Her role protecting and guiding her people through music still very important to these days. On Las Penas Alegres Petrona explores her roots deeply and bring out soulful performances about her own experiences through her 71 years of a remarkable life. Special guests include Carlos Vives band matesEgidio Cuadrado (on El Gavilan Negro) and Mayte Montero (Milagros) plus traditional tambora singer Martina Camargo (La Petronta Martinez) and virtuoso Euphonium Master Ramon Benitez (La Varita de Maria Angola).


It is a unique voice aged by years of singing just like Billie Holiday or Elena Burke, who sang better than ever as time passed by.

Las Penas Alegres confirms not only her enormous creativity as a songwriter but her outstanding vocal skills. Her voice is now clearer and her verses are full of new stories about her life.

David Lara Bonilla

Her compositions are daily experiences committed to songs , and those songs led her to tour the world. Even though her name has been a synonymous of bullerengue for years in ''Las Penas Alegres'' she sings vallenato as well.

Es una voz unica, madurada con los anios como la de Billie Holiday o Elena Burke, que cantaron mejor que nunca con el tiempo a cuestas.

Las Penas Alegres confirma no solo su enorme creatividad para la composición, sino también sus virtudes interpretativas. Su voz suena ahora más clara y sus versos cargados de nuevos relatos sobre su vida.

David Lara Bonilla

Sus composiciones son su cotidianidad hecha canción, y esas vivencias la ha llevado a girar por el mundo...aunque durante años ha sido sinónimo de bullerengue, en ''Las penas alegres'' canta un vallenato.
