La cumbiamba âeNeYéâ is an ensemble that performs concerts and workshops with traditional instruments from the African Diaspora in Colombia, as well as indigenous and European. All of which are blended together in the traditional musical styles that developed throughout the colonial era, and continue to evolve. âeNeYéâ has the range of versatility to perform from a quintet format, for reduced space events; up to a 10-piece band format for large events.

La cumbiamba âeNeYéâ was created in the summer of 2000 with a group of musicians of caliber who share an enthusiasm for investigating, performing and advancing musical expressions emanating from the mix of African, Native Indian, and European cultural contributions in the Americas.

La Cumbiamba eNeYé offers two different types of educational programs. Colombian Traditional Music & Dance Workshop and Traditional Colombian Music Master Class.
In the Atlantic Coast

Gaitas y Tambores

From the Atlantic coast, this style is performed with pre-Columbian woodwind native indigenous instruments along with the maraca. In this powerful musical style developed and cultivated throughout the colonial and post-colonial eras until present, drums from the African Diaspora blend as two peas in a pot with the gaitas and their unique contour of melodies. A given piece can be instrumental or sung in Spanish. When it is sung, it is said that this style constitutes a perfect artistic expression of the tri-ethnicity that characterizes general population in the region.

Banda âPelayeraâ

Also from the Colombian Caribbean region, this style is performed with the same instruments present in any traditional marching band except that the percussion section contains only one of each. However, this style has plenty of freedom in terms of the brass or woodwind instruments that can be used for a given performance. The term âpelayeraâ alludes to San Pelayo, a small town in the Atlantic coast region home of a famous and popular annual band festival. âMúsica Pelayeraâ denotes the above-mentioned instrumentation along with the body of repertoire, which a band from the region usually plays, or its musical characteristics and nuances.

Terapia or Champeta

From the Caribbean coast, âla musica champetaâ refers to the most recent wave of popular influence to be embraced by the common folk in the Colombian Caribbean. Even though present in the Caribbean throughout the century, this musical style was propelled to unprecedented heights by popular music movements emanating from Africa in the immediate post revolution/independence years in the 1960âs, particularly from the Congo area. As a result, âchampetaâ is more easily compared and associated with Congolese âzoukousâ. However, the term champeta as it is used in Colombia may include or take various characteristics of similar styles such as calypso, socca, samba, bomba, or zoukus from other regions of the Caribbean or even Brazil which share Congo elements.

In the Pacific Coast
Conjunto de marimba: This musical tradition takes its name from one of the rhythms played by this type of traditional ensembles found in numerous small villages and towns along Colombiaâs Pacific coast and in Ecuador. This ensembles feature the marimba as the main melodic and harmonic foundation, singing, and drums called bombos and cununos. Other genres within the traditions of these types of ensembles are Currulao, bunde, arrullo, aguabajo, and juga.
This musical style is from the Pacific coast, and itâs instrumentation is the same as in the âbanda Pelayeraâ. There are however, great differences between these styles, but those are entirely and strictly musical. The differences are present in nuances, rhythms, melodic contour, and phrasing.
