Monsieur Periné – Suin a la colombiana | Botoá – Colombia

Monsieur Periné are among the highlights of Columbia‘s young and thriving music scene around the capital Bogota. The young band behind the enchanting singer Catalina Garcia already have been enjoying many a success long before the release of their debut album. It all started back in 2010 when they won the Red Bull sponsored band contest „El Ensayadero“. In 2011 their track „La Muerte“ was voted „Song of the year“ by a popular Bogota radio station. Ever since their first album „Hecho a Mano“ hit the shelves in Columbia in June 2012, the band has been on the fast track to success.They entered the single charts, were voted Artist of the Week by MTV and became shootingstars on both youtube and facebook. After a string of highly successful concerts in Columbia, Mexico and the USA, „Hecho a Mano“ finally went gold in Columbia by the end of 2012.They have since created their very own style of music: Suin a la Comlombiana! Rooted in Swing Manouche and celebrating Django Reinhard, this fresh style adds a variety of elements to the mix – cumbia, son, bolero, currulao, tango and samba, employing traditional South-American instruments likethe bandoneon, charango and latin percussion, making the Suin a la Colombiana stand out indeed.The airy yet virtuosic instrumental foundation, connecting Paris of the 1930s with young Bogota, are the perfect backdrop to showcase Catalina Garcia‘s sugar-sweet, sunshiny vocals at the very center of Suin a la Columbiana. In both spanish and french her vocals exude sensibility that will – despite itsease – touch audiences profoundly. Her delivery stretches from the youthful and mellifluous Django Reinhard cover „Cou Cou“ or the ballad „La Playa“ to the deeply expressive musette-inspired song „Huracan“.The band‘s initial drive to explore and experiment is what allowed them to create a new style of music. With the Jazz Manouche as their foundation, a rhythm „bound to make all people, small or tall, dance as though they were puppets on a string under a magic spell, the magic of Periné!“ Withthe help of the illustrator Jose Arboleda and their own fashion designer, the band created a world of their own, that comes to live in their music, their artwork and of course their performances.

Questioning the world with a child‘s soul, experimenting and fantasizing are key elements to their creative process. Monsieur Periné‘s world is founded in „Alegria, Magia y Amor“ (joy, magic and love).Their debut-album presents a variety of different musical styles and moods, while maintaining a sunshiny feel throughout: all the way from the video-hit-singles „La Tienda De Sombreros“ and „Suin Romantico“ to ballads and even electroswing. This year Monsieur Periné are bringing their Suin a la Colombiana abroad. Right on time for the current electroswing wave sweeping across Europe!

Monsieur Perine’s Debüt-Album “Hecho a Mano” will be released in Europe on 10th of May 2013!!!

They will play their first European live tour in the summer of 2013!
