Alejo García is a singer-songwriter, explorer, and music producer from Colombia who mixes traditional and contemporary forms in his songs. His colorful, energetic music reflects the spirit of his travels, from mountains, plains, coastlines, jungles, rivers, and oceans to ports, cities, countrysides, and towns. Alejo has sung with Marta Gómez, Andrés Cepeda, César López, Petrona Martínez, Pablo Flores, Maite Hontele, Aterciopelados, Carlos Varela, Nepentes, Grupo Suramérica, and other important members of the latest generation of Spanish-language songwriters.
Rebecca Levi is a singer-songwriter and performer of South American folk music. Originally from New York City, she has lived for years in Peru and Colombia, teaching music and exploring the vast diversity of rhythms and tunes along the spine of the Andean cordillera. With her band Debarro, Rebecca arranges traditional South American pieces for contemporary audiences. In her original songs, she combines the sounds of North American folk music with a South American sensibility.
