La Marvela | Kiko Villamizar



Venue:La Marvela | Kiko Villamizar


La Marvela is an all-women band that plays and highlights the richness of Colombian Afro and indigenous rhythms. This is La Marvela’s debut at Bossa – drums, clapping, maracas, and voices!

Miami-born and Colombia-raised, Kiko Villamizar learned Latin American folk music through the oral tradition of his family then found himself back in Miami to study jazz after high school. After years collecting melodies and beats across the Americas, Kiko formed into his own unique mix. A fusion of Afro-Colombian, reggae, and other Latin world beats, his music is a celebration of Mother Earth while lamenting the violence and inequality that he has seen in his travels.
