As one of the oldest Cumbia LOS GAITEROS DE SAN JACINTO was established in the mid 1950s. Already in 1958, they toured internationally to China and Japan, and to Russia, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and other European countries. Their touring, the exceptional quality of their musicians across generations, and the fact that they are one of the few gaita ensembles whose music has been commercially produced have made them the most important musical group of gaitas and Cumbia in Colombia and worldwide!
Their album, Un Fuego de Sangre Pura (Fire in the Blood), won the Latin Grammy Award 2007 for Best Traditional Album competing against highly recognized artists such as Muñequitos de Matanzas from Cuba. Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto, a century of tradition inspired by the passion of a lifetime.
Miami born, Colombia raised. Having learned Latin American folk music through the oral tradition of his family, KIKO VILLAMIZAR then found himself back in Miami to study Jazz after high school. After years of collecting melodies and beats across the Americas, Kiko formed his own unique mix. His music is a celebration of Mother Earth . His songs are relevant and contemporary while strongly honoring his roots.
