Payambó was founded in Bogota, Colombia in 2009. The music band combines Afro-Colombian traditional music such as Cumbia, Mapale, Puya (among others) with Rock. In other words, Payambó is a fusion with special emphasis on the roots of the Colombian folklore. We have called this merger “Rocklore”.
After successfully touring in Colombia (Bogotá, Cali, Tuluá y Medellín), Mexico, Spain, France, Switzerland, Germany, the Netherlands and Austria, for the “Indio Blanco Tour 2016” and the “Somos Eurotour 2017”, Payambó has continued to appeal to the audience abroad. Indeed, they took part in different International events and Festivals, such as Rock al Parque (Colombia), the 26th International Festival of Arts and Culture Quimera (México), Festival Noches Latinas (Paris), Colombia Festival (Frankfurt), SXSW (Usa) and Landjuweel Festival (Amsterdam), among others.
In 2018, Payambó went on his third international tour, the “Salvaje Tour 2018” with 41 dates throughout Colombia, the United States, Spain, the Netherlands, Switzerland, France, Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic. During that year, they performed at the “SXSW”(Austin – USA), the “Landjuweel Festival” (Amsterdam – NL), “The Young World Music Sessions” (Nyon – CH), among others, positioning Payambó as one of the Colombian bands with great international projection.
Currently, the band works on its 2nd album and on the promotion of its 1st album “Payambó”, thats seeks to recognize the traditional Afro-Colombian music through its mixture with Rock.
