Secret Planet presents: La Perla
Blue Room at CitySpace (43 Main Street, Easthampton, MA 01027, Easthampton MA)
**AFRO-COLOMBIAN RHYTHMS WITH PUNK ROCK ATTITUDE**
In Colombia’s capital of Bogota, La Perla are sometimes referred to as the Three Drum Witches — they’re a one-of-a-kind vocal and drum trio with powerful lyricism, charged lyrics, and a cross-pollinated expression of Lat-Am genres such as cumbia, bullerengue, merengue, gaita, chalupa, samba and champeta.
This ain't your mama's drum trio, and it ain't what we used to call world music. It's three powerful modern women playing original music influenced by and based in the folklore of their country, layered with the urban elements of contemporary Bogota and the international influences of hip-hop and rock n’ roll.
