Chiva Gantiva is made up of three Colombians, a Chilean, a Belgian and a Vietnamese, who met in Brussels, where they all reside. They are explorers who transfer and transform the musical richness of their origins, creating bridges between the sounds of the folklore of ancient peoples and the combative rhythms of punk and ska, among others. A style of their own that they call “Punklore”. On stage, La Chiva Gantiva sweeps in with an overwhelming live show. The Times said of their concert: “They put together a frenzied carnival party, exploding like a Molotov cocktail of rock, rap, soul and fiercely funky Latin rhythms”. The band has toured the five continents and is a benchmark for rebellious new roots music.
