Description

Calafia Armada is a nine-piece band of all-star folklore musicians hailing from all over the world and collaborating in Oakland to tell the story of the Amazon queen who gave California its name. They breathe a fresh wind into timeless traditions of Afro-Colombian and Jarocho rhythms and melodies interspersed with stories of Calafia, the history of our rhythms, and the history of California. A new wind rustling the leaves of age old trees, Calafia Armada plays a range of traditional rhythms and melodies from across the Americas including Jarocho, Puya, Rumba, and most of all, Cumbia.
