Pl Major de Nou Barris, 1
Colombia, México: dos pueblos una raíz
Lucía Pulido Ensemble
With their project, Colombia, México: dos pueblos una raíz, Lucía Pulido Ensemble interweaves diverse stories an sounds through the combination of a wide range of popular rhythms from both countries: cúmbia, trova yucateca, petenera, bambuc, pirekues and guabines, among others. Essentially, this concert bridges the sentiments and traditions of two nations, engaging with popular and experimental musical expressions, as well as original compositions.
Traditional genres like bullerengue from the Atlantic coast, currulaos from the Pacific and joropos from the eastern plains (the landscape of her childhood) are the driving force behind Lucía Pulido’s creative musical expressions. The artist’s vocal range, sophisticated yet powerful, is accentuated in styles such as cattle herding songs and zafra songs, or alabaos, which allow her to fully explore her voice.
Pulido settled in Bogotá in the early 1980s; later, she joined a troupe of bohemian singer-songwriters interested in the rural melodies of the Colombian Andes and Llanos; she also lived in New York and now resides in Mexico, a life journey that is reflected in her music.
